The Fisheries Resource, Assessment, and Monitoring (FRAM) and Conservation Biology (CB) Divisions at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center seeks a shared postdoctoral fellow in marine genetics and genomics. The two division have long been involved in collaborative efforts, including, but not limited to the genetic identification of cryptic rockfish species and now embark on large-scale, Pacific Coast-wide population genetic studies aimed at understanding genetic connectivity of marine fishes, including lingcod, rockfishes, and hake. The research will involve building genomic DNA libraries, bioinformatics processing of sequencing data, and analyses to evaluate population structure, as well evaluating associations between environmental and life history parameters and genetic diversity. A theoretical population genetics background with extensive computational/bioinformatic experience is essential along with experience in computing languages and programs that facilitate population genomic and seascape genomic studies.
