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”

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
