The honey bee lab (www.yorku.ca/zayedlab) at York University’s Dept. of Biology (Toronto, Canada) has several positions available starting Fall of 2021. Projects include:
1) Ecological genomics and pollinator health: Our group is leading a national initiative called BeeCSI (https://beecsi.ca/) to identify stressor specific biomarkers for use in pollination conservation. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with experience in transcriptomics and interest in bee biology to participate in both wet-lab and bioinformatic components of this research.
2) Comparative population genomics of eusocial insects: We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to study the relationship between genome evolution and social evolution using population genomic datasets on a large number of insects that vary in their social organization.
Starting Salary: $55,000 per year
Qualified candidates are encouraged to submit their CV to Amro Zayed (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In addition to the honey bee lab, York University is home to the Center for Bee Ecology, Evolution and Conservation (BEEc, https://bees.yorku.ca). Successful candidates will have a chance to interact with the diverse faculty, fellows and students at BEEc, and participate in BEEc activities and training initiatives.
