A postdoctoral position is available to work on a project related to algorithmic foundations of phylogenetic networks. Such networks are used to represent and analyse evolutionary relationships between entities such as species, viruses, and cancer cells. A particular focus of the project is the development of new parameterized algorithms and other algorithms with performance guarantee to reconstruct phylogenetic networks from biological data. The position is for 18 months, to commence in early 2023, and fully-funded by a Marsden Fund Grant from the Royal Society of New Zealand Te Apārangi. The successful candidate will be based in the School of Computer Science at the University of Auckland.
Applications will be reviewed starting 15 April 2022 and continue until the position is filled. For more information and application instructions, see here.
