Postdoctoral Scholar in Evolutionary Genomics Lab

The Lee lab at the University of California, Irvine invites applications for one Postdoctoral Scholar. Our group works on the interplay between transposable elements and genome evolution by combining population genomics, computational biology, and cell biology.
Current projects in the lab include the impacts of transposable elements on epigenome and 3D genome organization, empirical and theoretical population genomics of transposable elements, and broadly how epigenome shapes genome evolution.
Candidates will ideally have interests broadly relevant to these topics, and will have opportunities to pursue their own research interests in evolutionary genetics/epigenetics.

Our lab is part of the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (, the Center for Evolutionary Genetics (, and Center for Complex Biological Systems (
More information about our research interests can be found at

The successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in the following or related fields: evolutionary genetics, genetics, genomics, epigenetics, cell biology, bioinformatics or computational biology. We are currently looking for candidates who (1) have extensive experience with high-throughput sequencing and strong quantitative skills or (2) have extensive experience with epigenomics/cell biology. We particularly encourage applications from candidates who have recently completed, or will soon complete, their PhD.

The expected start date is flexible.
