Postdoctoral position bioinformatics


Bioinformatics of pollinator-mediated speciation

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in bioinformatics in an ERC-supported project that aims to understand the molecular-genetic basis of pollinator-mediated speciation in the genus Petunia.

We are looking for a postdoc with expertise in bioinformatics and an interest in evolutionary genetics.

The successful candidate will be involved in the generation of high quality sequence information that makes it possible to address the functional and structural variation in a “supergene”, a chromosomal region of low recombination that harbors several speciation genes. 

We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment and high end facilities.  The lab language is English.  

The city of Bern is the capital of Switzerland and provides an attractive international living environment (

The position is for up to 4 years and is available immediately. Applications will be continuously evaluated until the deadline of Sept 30, 2018. Your application should be a single pdf file with curriculum vitae, copies of diplomas and transcripts, motivation letter stating your research interest and contact details of three references.
