    Postdoctoral position in Evolutionary Developmental Genomics

    A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Antónia Monteiro to study the genetic basis of morphological variation in butterfly wing patterns. The project will involve using comparative genomic data to identify loci involved in producing wing pattern differences across populations of Bicyclus anynana butterflies. Subsequently, once candidate loci are found, the goal will be to use transgenic tools to test the function of these candidate loci in producing the morphological variation.

    The position is initially for three years and can start immediately. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience. Candidates with experience in bioinformatics and genomics, in particular in using NGS data, are especially welcome to apply.

    The Department of Biological Sciences offers world-class research labs and infrastructure and a convivial and collaborative environment. Singapore is a lush, green city offering tropical weather year around, a diversity of food, and nearby exotic locations.

    Interested applicants should contact Antónia Monteiro ( with a CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names of three references.
