PhD positions: immune genetics, zoonotic disease transmission, mathematical modeling

The Goldberg lab is recruiting postdocs and graduate students. We are a computational lab with occasional wet lab or field collaborators. Members of the lab will be participate in the large Duke community of evolutionary anthropology and genetics labs, and have the opportunities to work with collaborators in Brazil, Sweden, Croatia, and throughout the US.

Students and postdocs may work on a range of projects in theoretical and empirical population genetics, computational archaeology, and human-environment interactions. Much of our work is in humans and other primates, but study system is flexible.

Current projects include mathematical models of malaria transmission, primate immunogenetics, genetics of admixed populations, and genome-structure evolution in primates. Individuals with a background in primate disease ecology, mathematical models of infectious disease, malaria biology, or genome assembly are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Goldberg lab combines theory and computational data analysis; interest in biological applications of programming, statistics, and/or mathematics is required. Postdoc candidates should contact Amy Goldberg with a CV and brief statement of research interests. Candidates should be specific about their interests in our work. Postdoc positions are one-year contracts, renewable for 3 years.

We accept PhD students through the 1) Computational Biology & Bioinformatics graduate program, 2) the University Program in Genetics & Genomics, and 3) department of Evolutionary Anthropology. All programs support PhD students with a competitive stipend.

We strive to be an inclusive environment for all.
