Postdoctoral Research Associate Position: Population Genetics, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill:

The Johri Lab is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join us at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Our research interests involve understanding how evolutionary processes like selection, mutation, recombination, and historical population size changes shape patterns of genomic variation. Projects can involve employing computational and theoretical approaches or statistical method development or using an empirical approach to ask fundamental questions in population genetics. 

The position is best suited for someone trained in population genetics/evolutionary genomics and/or someone with a quantitative background (such as statistics, computer science, or mathematics) and an interest in population genetics. A Ph.D. in a relevant field will be required by the start date. Informal enquiries about your fit to the lab are very welcome!

Start date is flexible and can be any time after January 15th, 2023. We are located in the intellectually vibrant Research Triangle area where there are many excellent faculty studying evolutionary biology and genomics both at UNC and neighboring institutions, providing a fantastic opportunity for postdocs to interact with other labs.

How to Apply:

Interested candidates should send the following materials to Parul Johri (

– CV

– Contact information of two references

– A brief explanation of your research interests and why you are interested in joining the lab. [Can be a single paragraph.] Review of applications will begin on September 15th, 2022, and continue until a suitable candidate fills the position.
