Postdoctoral position in evolutionary systems biology:
We are seeking creative candidates for a postdoctoral position in evolutionary systems biology. The specific project will be developed with the selected candidate around the themes of interest in our group, which include the evolution of protein interaction networks, evolution of gene regulation and of gene duplication.
See recent papers from the lab on these topics:
We use both computational and experimental approaches (genome editing, deep mutational scanning, experimental evolution), and the ideal candidate would be able to combine both, but this is not a strict requirement.
The Landry lab is located at the Institut de Biologie Intégrative et des Systèmes (IBIS) of Université Laval in Québec City and is part of the Quebec Network for Research on Protein Function, Engineering, and Applications (PROTEO). The lab is an international team of 20+ students, postdoctoral fellows and research associates from diverse backgrounds (microbiology, biology, bioinformatics, biochemistry) addressing questions in evolutionary cell and systems biology.
Québec City is an affordable and lively city that offers an excellent quality of life: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quebec_City
PhD in biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, or any related and relevant field, obtained after 2022. No formal background in the study of evolution is needed but interest in studying evolution is required. Publications relevant to the field.
Starting date: September 2023 or January 2024 (flexible)
Duration: 2 years with the possibility of extension.
The application package (1 single PDF file) should include a motivation letter demonstrating the interest of the candidate for the field and a short summary of specific interests, a CV and the contact information of three people who can be contacted for reference. The single file should be sent to email@example.com
The position will remain open until a candidate is selected.
