Applications are open for Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Idaho Department of Animal, Veterinary and Food Sciences. The Department of Animal, Veterinary and Food Sciences conducts focused, comprehensive and integrated research and teaching programs that directly support animal agriculture and food sciences. Students receive hands-on experience and classroom instruction as they prepare for careers in the animal science and food industries. The department also develops and delivers Extension programs within these disciplines.

Position Summary 

Due to increased demand for bioinformatics support, we invite applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in Bioinformatics and Agricultural Genomics. The successful applicant will work on projects aimed at understanding genomic and epigenetic mechanisms of production and disease-related traits in livestock. This position will work with Dr. Brenda Murdoch to develop tools, pipelines, and analysis techniques to process and analyze data generated from high-throughput sequencing, high-capacity genotyping, and other emerging high-throughput genomics/genetics techniques.

Dr. Murdoch welcomes applications from individuals wanting to join a productive and well-recognized genetics lab. The position is highly collaborative in nature; therefore, strong communication skills and a willingness to work with a diverse team are essential. This position is contingent upon the continuation of work and/or funding.
