We are currently seeking a post-doctoral scientist to join our research group where they will help lead an effort focusing on the impact of environmental change on DNA methylation in marine invertebrates. One of the primary projects that will launch in early 2016 is an effort examining how ocean acidification impacts genetic and epigenetic variation in Geoduck (Panopea generosa) larvae. This person should have experience in shellfish culture and high-throughput sequencing analysis. Prior experience with RAD-seq and bisulfite sequencing would be preferred. The candidate should also be enthusiastic about open science. For more information on ongoing research efforts and products please visit robertslab.info. The term of this appointment will be for one year with the possibility of extension to two years. Interested applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a succinct description of their doctoral research, and list of three references to Steven Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org).
