Applications are invited for an experienced postdoc to work on genomic and transcriptomic variation in mosquitoes. The project will use Illumina sequencing to characterise natural variation in the genome and transcriptome of the disease vector Aedes aegypti, and to link this to variation in the ability of mosquitoes to transmit disease. The project is a collaboration between Dr Frank Jiggins (Dept of Genetics, University of Cambridge, UK) and Dr Arnab Pain (KAUST, Saudi Arabia). There will be one post-doctoral position in each laboratory, with close collaboration and exchanges between the labs. The Cambridge position will involve analysis of the assembled genomes together with some rearing of mosquitoes and molecular biology. You must have a PhD or equivalent in genetics and relevant research experience.

Informal enquiries to Frank Jiggins:

Completed applications, which should consist of a completed CHRIS/6 application form (Parts I and III) - see - and a full CV, should be sent to Mrs T Oakley Dept of Genetics, Downing St, Cambridge CB2 3EH. e-mail:
