Currently Open Positions
Below, we regularly publish positions for our projects for which we seek ambitious and aspiring scientists to join us in researching the dynamics of infectious diseases.
Visualisation of Ancestral Recombination Graphs
We are looking for a Master student to work on the development of an R package for the manipulation and visualization of ancestral recombination graphs. Ancestral recombination graphs are used to represent the evolution of organisms in the presence of recombination or horizontal gene transfer. The package will likely extend the existing ggtree package for the visualisation of phylogenetic trees.
This work will benefit ongoing projects in our group and could result in a scientific publication. Candidates should have proficient skills in R programming. Previous experience or knowledge of phylogenetics would be appreciated but is not mandatory.
Interested parties are invited to contact Dr. Arthur Kocher at kocher@...
