Postdoctoral Researcher

 Hyderabad, Telangana


CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology is seeking a motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to work on phylogenomic and population genomics of soil arthropods in peninsular India. The position is part of a project funded by DBT/​Wellcome India Alliance on arthropod venom and its role in speciation is relatively understudied predatory soil arthropods Venom evolution in ancient predatory soil arthropods: evolutionary and ecological perspectives”. They are interested in examining evolutionary relationships as well as spatial genetic variation across multiple closely related species. Particularly interested in understanding the role of geoclimatic, geographic, and ecological processes that determine the distribution and, consequently, genetic variation within and among species. A recent paper outlines some of the questions which will be addressed during the project.

Your key responsibilities will be to:

  • lead research projects on phylo and population genomics of soil arthropods in peninsular India
  • generation and analyses of large phylogenomic and population genomic data sets from soil
    arthropods to ask key questions in evolutionary biology
  • present the results of the research at seminars and conferences
  • write papers for publication in peer-reviewed journals
  • work effectively as part of a team
  • mentor masters and/​or graduate students in the lab

A 3‑year postdoc position on phylogenomics and population genomics soil arthropods from peninsular India at Evolutionary Ecology Lab at CSIR-Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology, Hyderabad.
