Research associate (f/m/d) PostDoc Biology, Bioinformatics

Located in Brunswick, Germany.

The Thünen Institute of Forest Genetics, one of the 15 Federal Research Institutes for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries in Germany, is offering a 1,5-year position (100 %) starting as soon as possible for a research associate (f/m/d) (PostDoc Biology, Bioinformatics) to study genomic patterns of local adaptation in European beech (Fagus sylvatica) and their relevance under climate change. To this end, we use a population genomics dataset consisting of more than 1.000 beech individuals from 100 different populations across Europe growing together in a common garden. Additionally, we will generate MinION long read de novo assemblies of diverse individuals to characterize structural variation and generate a beech pangenome. Finally, we want to use genotype-phenotype and genotype-environment associations to train models predicting the risk of future maladaptation.
