Postdoctoral and research assistant positions in fungal functional genomics and evolution, Hungary

The Fungal Genomics and Evolution Lab (BRC, Szeged) invites applications for multiple postdoctoral positions (computational and wet-lab) for the study of lignocellulose degradation, multicellularity, morphogenetic and developmental transitions and the evolution of complexity in fungi.

We use a combination of comparative evolutionary analyses, cutting edge -omics techniques and molecular biology. Within the broad research interests of the lab, the successful candidates will explore research ideas along the lines of:

  • gene regulatory networks underlying lignocellulose degradation and multicellularity
  • the evolution of yeasts and dimorphic fungi
  • fungal morphogenesis (defined broadly, including the development of fruiting bodies, pathogenesis-related morphological structures, etc.)
