Kedves Kollégák!

A közelmúltban indult Lendület pályázatom kapcsán posztdokot keresek:

A postdoctoral position is available to join the recently funded Evolutionary
Genomics Research Group (under a highly competitive 5 year grant from the
Hungarian Academy of Sciences’ “Momentum” program).

The Evolutionary Genomics research group’s aim is to develop a coherent
treatment of evolutionary processes at different time scales, from the
diversification of species over hundreds of millions of years, to the decade
long development of tumours. The successful candidate will have the
opportunity to choose between two topics that are currently the subject of
intense scientific interest, each aiming to extract quantitative information
on the underlying biological processes from large genomic datasets: 1.
reconstructing a dated tree of life from complete genomes using phylogenetic
discord as molecular fossils and 2. to understand cancer evolution in
hierarchically differentiating tissue using tumour genomes.
The successful candidate will either have a background in Evolutionary
Biology, Bioinformatics or a related field, or come from a strong
quantitative background such as Applied Mathematics or Statistics, or
Statistical or Biological Physics with the ambition to pursue research in
Evolutionary Biology.

The position is for up to 5 years with a salary of up to 500,000 HUF per
month conditional on experience (adjusting for cost of living this
corresponds to approx. EUR 2,500 in Berlin, 2,600 in Vienna and 3,500 in
Paris [] ).
The research group is lead by Dr. Gergely Szollosi ( ) and actively
collaborates with the research groups of Vincent Daubin, Nicolas Lartillot
and Bastien Boussau (Evolutionary Genomics and Phylogeny, CNRS, Lyon France)
as well as Eric Tannier (Bioinformatics, Computer Science, INRIA Lyon
France), Tom Williams (Molecular evolution, phylogenetics , University of
Bristol) and Carolin Kosiol (Bioinformatics, Vetmeduni Vienna). The
successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with and visit for
periods of up to several months the collaborating parties.

The research group is hosted at Eötvös Universities Institute of Physics. The
Institute of Physics has been included in the Excellence Group of European
Universities, and has achieved top placement in the number of citations, the
number of ERC grants, the time available for PhD research and the gender
balance of master’s students in the CHE Excellence Ranking. The research
group is associated to the Depts. of Biological Physics and Complex Systems
composed of several interdisciplinary research groups including those of
Prof. Imre Derényi, Prof. Tamás Vicsek, and Prof. István Csabai with
experience in the analysis of large scale datasets, including next generation
sequencing data.

Please direct all enquiries to Dr. Gergely Szollosi
