This supports research in bioinformatics and computational biology. Scholars will pursue research in genomics or spatial bioinformatics or biodiversity informatics, alongside researchers interested in phylogenetics, phylogeography, evolutionary studies, and phenomics. They will also participate in the design, development and implementation of new algorithms, bioinformatics tools and infrastructure and computational methods to facilitate genomic assemblies and analyses, and develop methods to catalyse ongoing synthesis of phylogenetic information.

Applicants must have a PhD in a relevant discipline, with experience in computational biology and analysis of large biological data sets. Students in the final stages of completing their PhD may apply.

Funding may include full medical insurance and AMNH employee benefits for up to two years. Relocation, research and publication support is available.
