Graduate position: UCalifornia_LA.MicrobiomeEvolution

Graduate student:UCLA.MicrobiomeEvolution
> Graduate student position atUCLAon the evolutionary dynamics of the
> microbiome.
> A PhD position starting in Fall 2020 is available in the lab of
> Dr. Nandita Garud in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
> at the University of California, Los Angeles. We are broadly interested
> in understanding the evolutionary dynamics of natural populations with
> a current focus on the microbiome. The lab develops statistical and
> computational methods to gain insight into evolutionary processes from
> population genomic data.
> Students will have substantial input in the specific nature of their
> research project. However, the project should broadly fit within the
> lab¢s goals of learning about adaptation in natural populations and
> evolutionary dynamics in the microbiome. As this is a computational lab,
> prior experience in in programming in R, Perl, or Python, and shell
> scripting is preferred.
> Additional information can be found at:
> The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology department atUCLAoffers
> a cutting-edge research environment with many opportunities for
> collaboration. The lab will have affiliations with the Microbiome Center
> atUCLAand the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biology atUCLA.
> Interested candidates should apply to the EEB program atUCLAby December
> 1 and specify Dr. Nandita Garud as a Prospective Faculty Advisor
