About the program:

The Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) is inviting prospective candidates to the MSCA -PF-2022 call. The aim of the Master Class is to attract and help highly motivated researchers to successfully apply for an MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowship (1-3 years, expected salary before tax: 790K NOK/year + mobility allowance) with NMBU.

We will offer a complete training package for MSCA-PF applicants free of charge). Please read more information about the program here.

About the group: Dr. Marie Saitou, Section for Genome Biology, Faculty for Bioscience, NMBU

Our interest is in revealing the biological basis and evolutionary histories of various interesting species by using genomics, bioinformatics and biostatistics.

Keywords: Functional genomics, transcriptome, eQTL, polygenic score, genome-wide association study, population genetics, comparative genomics, natural selection, demographic history.

(1) Genomic Diversity and Evolution We are interested in investigating evolutionary history of species and populations such as adaptation and demographic history by comparing population-scale genomes.

(2) Connecting Genome to Phenotype We are interested in investigating how the genetic variants contributes phenotypic diversity in the view of evolution. We use functional genomics toolsets, such as RNA-sequencing and genome-wide association study to investigate this question.
