through the National Institute of Justice (Applicant expected
to start in the Spring semester of 2013). Ideal candidates will
have a PhD in Molecular or Computational Biology, Bioinformatics,
Genomics, or other fields relevant to the project, which will
involve quantitative and functional genomic studies of the blow
fly Cochliomyia macellaria, a blow fly species commonly
found in association with human remains.
The successful candidate
will be capable of collecting and analyzing DNA/RNA as well
as analyzing Hi-Seq libraries derived from DNA and RNA of embryonic,
larval, pupal, and adult blow flies. The funding grant involves
genomic data and collaboration with Sing-Hoi Sze at TAMU (http://faculty.cs.tamu.edu/shsze/)
and Christine Picard at IUPUI (http://biology.iupui.edu/people/christine-picard).
The Tarone lab also
works with several additional research groups. Accordingly,
applicants must be able to demonstrate their ability to work
well within the context of a scientific team. Texas A&M
hosts a vibrant biological science community which includes
the Whole Systems Genomics Initiative (https://genomics.tamu.edu/)
and a community of top notch Evolutionary Ecologists (http://eeb.tamu.edu/).
