Two postdoc positions are available as part of a Simons/Moore
Foundation-funded project on the origin of the eukaryotic cell.

We are searching for postdocs to develop and apply new phylogenomic methods
(particularly gene tree-species tree reconciliation methods) to work on the
timing of eukaryotic origins and the nature of the genetic contributions from
archaeal host, bacterial endosymbiont, and other possible sources.

We offer a chance to make progress on fundamental evolutionary questions,
and, as part of a broader initiative, to interact with leading thinkers in
the field.

One of the positions (2.5 years) is in the Paleobiology and Biodiversity
Research Group at Bristol (with a supervisory team consisting of Tom
Williams, Davide Pisani, and Phil Donoghue), and one in the lab of Gergely
Szöllősi at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (2 years).

The Bristol post is aimed at a “biologist who can use a computer” (applying
methods to new datasets is the #1 task), while the Budapest post is aimed at
someone with an interest in algorithms and method development (#1 task is
extending existing methods, e.g. ALE, and developing new ones).

The boundaries between the two aims, however, overlap and the postdocs will,
we hope, work closely together.

Given the challenges of the ongoing pandemic, we're open to flexible/remote

For the Bristol position please see
