As part of this collaboration, we are seeking to appoint a joint postdoctoral fellow to work with leading researchers at both the ARC Centre and AIMS.
The position provides the opportunity for an exceptional candidate to pursue research in the population genetics of corals on the Great Barrier Reef, and the evolutionary responses of wild corals to recurrent episodes of thermal bleaching due to climate extremes. Suitable areas of focus include genetic modelling, evolutionary theory, genomics, geneflow and meta-population dynamics. The joint appointment will provide the candidate with the freedom to develop a research program linked to the broad objectives of the position that suits their interests and expertise.
