Postdoctoral scholarships are available for North American scientists of US or Canadian citizenship. Candidates are invited to apply for a position in any of the research groups in the Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology and the Institute of Evolution at the University of Haifa:
The Department of Evolutionary and Environmental Biology and the Institute of Evolution offer a diverse, interdisciplinary, international, and multilingual work environment. The various research groups offer a diverse range of projects involving lab experiments and field studies, behavioral, developmental, cellular, molecular, and genetic essays, genomic/transcriptomic/microbiome analyses, and bioinformatics. Postdocs will have opportunities for collaboration with research groups working in various fields, with organisms ranging from bacteria to mammals and agricultural crops, and employing complementary techniques from tracking animal flight to evolutionary genomics.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in biology and have experience in advanced techniques in their respective field. Candidates from adjacent or complementary fields will also be considered (for example, conservation ecology or evolutionary modelling). Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record and research productivity. The Department and the Institute aim at a higher proportion of women in science. Qualified female scientists are encouraged to apply. Female scientists will be preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualification, competence and achievements. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree, or must submit their Ph.D. thesis by October 1, 2018. To apply, candidates must obtain the support of a potential supervisor.
