Applications from women and minorities are particularly encouraged.
Our group is primarily computational, but we have close ties to several wet lab groups and I encourage jointly-mentored wet-dry projects. We have recently and/or currently co-mentored trainees with Ami Bhatt, Hunter Fraser, Will Greenleaf, Alex Marson (UCSF), Ron Pinhasi (U Vienna) and Joanna Wysocka. Trainees are welcome to propose new collaborations.
Postdocs. We consider postdoctoral applications on a rolling basis, depending on fit to the lab and available space. To apply for a postdoc position, please email Jonathan the following: (i) a CV; (ii) information describing your research skills and experience; (iii) your goals and research interests for your postdoc training; and (iv) contact details for three references.
Postdoctoral applicants are expected to have a background in a relevant biological field or to come from a quantitative field (such as statistics or computer science) and have a demonstrated interest in genetics or evolution. Strong programming and bioinformatics skills are essential. Applicants must be highly motivated and able to work independently when needed.
PhD Applicants. PhD applications should go through one of the relevant programs (e.g., Biology, Genetics, BioMedical Informatics). There is a single application deadline each fall. Pre-application inquiries to Jonathan are encouraged.
Rotation Students. Please contact Jonathan to discuss. We welcome students from a broad range of fields including life-sciences programs as well as from quantitative fields such as CS, Statistics, etc. We have occasionally had students from other fields such as anthropology.
Undergraduates. Please contact Jonathan to discuss. Undergraduates should have strong computational or quantitative skills and an interest in biological questions.
