Post-doctoral position in social mammal behavior and genetics


A postdoctoral position in social mammal behavior and genetics is available in the Tung lab at Duke University, to begin as early as September 1, 2018. Our current research focuses on the biological consequences of social relationships and social stressors in primates and other social mammals, using genomic and computational tools. Open project areas involve the functional genomic analysis of life history trade-offs in wild meerkats and gene regulatory signatures of social experience in wild baboons and captive rhesus macaques. Applicants are also encouraged to be creative in developing their own projects, as long as they fit within the lab's general interests. 


Postdoctoral applicants should have a strong background in evolutionary biology, behavioral ecology, and/or functional/computational genomics. Strong data analysis skills, including programming and statistical modeling experience, are essential. Familiarity or experience with mammalian behavior or genetics is a plus. 


The Tung lab offers a congenial research environment that fosters strong interdisciplinary training and collaborative exchange. The lab is based in Duke's Department of Evolutionary Anthropology, and is affiliated with the Duke Department of Biology, the Center for Genomic and Computational Biology, and the Duke Population Research Institute.
