A postdoctoral position is available for a motivated investigator in the
lab of Felipe Barreto in the Department of Integrative Biology at Oregon
State University, Corvallis, Oregon. Work in our lab examines broad
questions in evolutionary biology in marine animals, integrating
physiological, behavioral, and biochemical assays with molecular genetics
and genomics/transcriptomics approaches. The successful candidate will
have the opportunity to participate in work examining the genetics of
physiological adaptations and reproductive isolation in the lab’s primary
study system, the intertidal copepod *Tigriopus californicus*, and will
also be encouraged to develop additional projects on new questions and/or
new study species within the general area of evolutionary genetics.

Please visit the P.I.’s homepage for more details on the lab’s research:

The candidate must have a Ph.D. in evolutionary biology or related fields.

Preferred qualifications:

– experience with basic molecular genetic approaches;

– experience analyzing Next-Generation sequencing data, and willingness to
learn additional bioinformatic approaches;

– interest in computational analyzes of population genetic and molecular
evolution processes.
