We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic assistant professor/postdoctoral researcher specializing in ancient metagenomics to join the Schroeder group in the Section for Molecular Ecology and Evolution at the Globe Institute, University of Copenhagen. The AlpGen project aims to explore the population history of the lake settlements that existed in and around the Alps from around 4,000 to 600 BCE. The Alpine lake settlements, with their spectacularly preserved wooden and other organic artefacts, represent some of the most important archaeological archives of human prehistory. The AlpGen project will shed new light on these communities using cutting-edge biomolecular methods, including ancient DNA and ancient protein analyses. You will join a multi-disciplinary research team as part of the AlpGen ERC Consolidator Project. Your main task will be to assist with the computational analysis of large-scale ancient metagenomic datasets generated from archaeological samples collected as part of the project and to develop new bioinformatic workflows for the assembly, binning, annotation, and down-stream analysis of ancient metagenomes.
