The University of São Paulo (Department of Botany) and The George Washington University (Computational Biology Institute) seek candidates for a postdoctoral fellowship in biodiversity informatics for up to three years. The successful candidate would split time between the two host institutions working on applications of next-gen sequencing approaches to biodiversity science through effective informatics. We seek a candidate with a PhD in bioinformatics, evolutionary biology, biodiversity science, or a related field (or anticipate a PhD by a targeted start date of September 1, 2014). The candidate should have a strong background in bioinformatics, evolutionary methodology, and project management skills. The candidate will work directly with Drs. Lúcia Lohmann (São Paulo), Amy Zanne, and Keith Crandall (Washington DC) and the bioGENESIS working group http://www.biogenesis-diversitas.org to provide an evolutionary framework for biodiversity science. Our specific project is to use next-generation DNA sequencing approaches to characterize forest and associated soil communities and their diversity across ecosystems using novel informatic approaches. Interested candidates should send their CV and letter of interest by April 22, 2014 to cbi@gwu.edu. For questions concerning this opportunity, please contact Lúcia Lohmann llohmann@usp.br, Amy Zanne azanne@gwu.edu or Keith Crandall kcrandall@gwu.edu.
