INVITATION FOR A PHD CANDIDATE
Call for a PhD candidate to integrate the ARCHAEOGENETICS research group and develop a project in the field of Archaeogenetics, Biology, Animal Science and Bioinformatics.
 

We are looking for a highly motivated graduate student, who is interested in pursuing a PhD degree in the field of Archaeogenetics, Biology, Animal Science, Bioinformatics or related fields to join the team of the ARCHAEOGENETICS Research Group at CIBIO-InBIO.

 

The PhD student will investigate the genomic diversity of past and extant Iberian cattle populations to unveil their origins, evolutionary trajectories and modes of improvement. It will employ whole-genome re-sequencing data generated within the ARCHAIC and OPTIBOV projects to carry out a comprehensive Population Genomics study of Iberian cattle to investigate demographic processes and post-domestication changes in inheritable traits.

 

The invited student will interact with an international team of scientists at CIBIO-InBIO, Campus of Vairão, Portugal, at LARC-National Laboratory of Archaeosciences in Lisbon, Portugal, and at foreign participating institutions namely the The Center for Palaeogenetics of Stockholm University, under the supervision of CIBIO-InBIO researcher Catarina Ginja.


The application should include the following information:

  • Motivation letter with a short biography and research interests
  • Curriculum vitae summarizing education, experience, other qualifying activity and a list of publications
  • Copy of master degree and course grades
  • Names and contact information of two referees

 

The application must be written in English and sent by e-mail to ARCHAIC@cibio.up.pt until March 15, 2019.
