The Hibbett lab at Clark University seeks a highly motivated, independent postdoctoral fellow to conduct research in evolutionary genomics in mushroom-forming fungi. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in one or more of the following projects: (1) Evolutionary developmental biology of Agaricomycetes; (2) Evolution of substrate-specificity in wood-decay fungi; or (3) Phylogenomics of Lentinula (shiitake mushrooms and relatives). All three projects require expertise in evolutionary genomics and molecular phylogenetics. Experience in fungal genetics is also desirable. Research could include “wet bench” techniques, including culturing and production of fruiting bodies for transcriptomics, or could be entirely analytical, depending on the candidate’s skills and interests. Applicants should have a PhD in genomics, evolutionary genetics, fungal biology, or a relevant discipline, a strong publication record (appropriate for career stage), and excellent communication skills. Willingness to involve students in research...
