Le LBBE recrute un post-doctorant sur l’évolution des chromosomes sexuels chez les primates

par Nathalie Arbasetti - 8 mai 2014

We offer a 24-months postdoc position on sex chromosome evolution in primates. The postdoc research project will be about studying the effect of X-Y and Y-Y gene conversion on the evolution of the primate Y chromosome.

The postdoc will contribute to ongoing methodological developments to identify gene conversion events in phylogenies using a ML framework and to study the molecular evolution of regions undergoing gene conversion using non-homogeneous codon-based models. She/he will apply these methods to an unpublished multispecies sequence dataset. The postdoc will work with Gabriel Marais (http://lbbe.univ-lyon1.fr/-Marais-Gabriel-.html) and Laurent Guéguen (http://lbbe.univ-lyon1.fr/-Gueguen-Laurent-.html). The position will be at the “Ecology and Evolutionary biology” Department (rated A+ at last AERES evaluation in 2009, see http://lbbe.univ-lyon1.fr), at the Université Lyon 1. Gross salary is 2,500 euros / month, health insurance provided.
