Narodowe Centrum Nauki prezentuje bazę ogłoszeń o wolnych stanowiskach pracy przy projektach finansowanych przez Centrum. Narodowe Centrum Nauki nie ponosi odpowiedzialności za treść i wiarygodność przesyłanych ofert pracy.
Uprzejmie informujemy o nowych warunkach zatrudniania osób na stanowiska typu post-doc: limit czasu upływającego od uzyskania stopnia doktora dla aplikujących na te stanowiska kobiet może być przedłużony o 1,5 roku za każde urodzone bądź przysposobione dziecko.
-Master’s degree or equivalent in biological or related sciences
-Eligibility for PhD studies in Poland according to the regulations of the NCN has to be fulfilled
-experience in molecular techniques (e.g. DNA extractions, PCR, NGS)
-fluency in written and oral English
-passion for human evolution
-interest & willingness in problem solving (laboratory and computational)
-programming skills are highly welcomed but not a necessity
-curiosity, creativity and engagement
The candidate is expected to perform the following tasks:
-ancient DNA extraction
-Sequencing library preparation
-ancient genome assembly
-genome analyses (methylation, selection scans)
-drafting of publications and disseminating results
The candidate will be part of a team investigating the following project:
Centuries of research have unraveled the many facets of human’s singularity and with the recent advances in molecular biology we are now to directly link molecular foot¬prints with the adaptation to lifestyle changes in the past. One epoch with important alterations in human lifestyle is the Neolithic, where humans transitioned from hunt¬ing-gathering to farming, and consequently populations started to increase and modern lifestyle diseases became manifested. Paleo-genomic and -epigenomic tools allow us to assess genetic changes in the past and when applied to contemporaneously existing Neolithic hunter-gatherers and farmers from Sweden, we will be able to elucidate the traces that changes in lifestyle and culture have left in each of the ancient population and deduce their impact on our modern life.
The application should be written in English and contain the following documents
-CV (including a list of publications, awards & distinctions, completed internships)
-letter of motivation
-Copy of the Master’s degree (or equivalent)
-Contact information of 2 referees, one of which should be the MSc supervisor
