The Ragland lab at the University of Colorado, Denver is searching for a
postdoctoral fellow to conduct research on the genomic architecture of
adaptive, complex phenotypes, and on the evolution of gene regulatory
networks. This is a flexible position that will contribute to ongoing,
NSF-funded research on 1) seasonal adaptation in the Rhagoletis pomonella
species complex and associated parasitoid communities, a model for
ecological and cascading speciation via seasonal isolation, 2) the role of
developmental pleiotropy and regulatory network structure in constraining
thermal adaptation in Drosophilid species, and 3) leveraging genetic markers
to predict phenology and voltinism in forest pest species. For more
information see

In addition to current research priorities, the selected candidate will have
ample opportunity to develop new studies and research directions in these
and possibly other systems. Many projects in the lab are collaborative, and
there will be opportunities to interact with collaborators at the University
of Notre Dame, University of Florida, and BOKU Vienna.

In general, I would like to recruit an enthusiastic postdoc who can
interface well with other lab members with diverse interests in ecology,
evolution, physiology, and genetics, and who will be willing to tap into
resources on both of our downtown and medical campuses. More specifically,
the successful candidate will have a Ph.D in Biology, Computer Science, or a
closely related field with a strong background in evolutionary biology or
comparative physiology. A background in the application of statistical
models (e.g., glm, mixed models, multivariate analysis) is required, as is
experience with Linux command line environments and scripting languages (R,
python, perl). Wet lab experience with nucleic acids and the preparation of
Next Generation sequencing libraries is preferred. Candidates should also
demonstrate evidence of successful communication of results through
published manuscripts, conference presentations, or related activities.

The University of Colorado, Denver, hosts a vibrant community of life
science researchers on both the downtown Auraria campus and the Anschutz
medical campus, including an active postdoctoral association
The Department of Integrative Biology spans cell, molecular, ecological, and
evolutionary research, with strengths in ecological physiology, molecular
genetics, and developmental biology. Denver is a fantastic and progressive
city with endless possibilities for outdoor activities, well-developed
public transportation and cycling infrastructure, and excellent museums,
theaters, restaurants, and breweries.

Please submit a cover letter including research interests and addressing
the desired qualifications, curriculum vitae, and contact information,
including e-mail addresses of at least three references by email to Greg
Ragland ([email protected]). Screening of applications begins
July 1, 2017 and will continue until a suitable candidate is found.
