Research in the King Lab addresses fundamental questions in evolutionary genomics, seeking to understand how genomes change when phenotypes evolve. We integrate computational methods with large-scale empirical studies, with a primary focus on understanding the evolution of complex traits, particularly sensory and life history traits, using the fruit fly model system.

REP Postdoc Opportunity
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Elizabeth King (http://elizabethking.org) at the University of Missouri.  Research in the King Lab addresses fundamental questions in evolutionary genomics, seeking to understand how genomes change when phenotypes evolve. We integrate computational methods with large-scale empirical studies, with a primary focus on understanding the evolution of complex traits, particularly sensory and life history traits, using the fruit fly model system. We welcome applicants who have a desire to learn and gain experience with quantitative biology, experimental evolution, and/or genomics.
Initial appointment is for 1 year with the possibility of renewal based on satisfactory performance, and will include benefits and a starting salary of $56,000. The postdoctoral scholar will receive support in order to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship in the first year. The start date for the position is flexible, ideally no later than January 2023.
Interested applicants should email Elizabeth King (kingeg@missouri.edu) and provide a brief cover letter, a C.V., and names and contact information for 3 references. The cover letter should include a brief description of previous research experience, interest in the position, and future career goals. The position will remain open until filled.
