Postdoc: genome evolution of mycoheterotrophic plants.

 Naturalis has a position for a Postdoctoral researcher in the laboratory of Vincent Merckx

 We seek a postdoctoral fellow for a 12-month project on the genome evolution of mycoheterotrophic plants. The project will employ next-generation sequencing techniques for de novo  genome and transcriptome assembly of achlorophyllous mycoheterotrophic flowering plants. There will be a strong focus on genome assembly and genome comparison to dectect common genetic patterns in the evolution of mycoheterotrophy.
