The Goldberg lab is recruiting postdocs and graduate students to join when the lab starts at Duke University in January 2019! Members of the lab will be participate in the large Duke community of evolutionary anthropology and genetics labs, and have the opportunities to work with collaborators in Sweden, Croatia, Mexico, and throughout the US.

Work in the Goldberg lab analyses modern and ancient genetic data from multiple species in the context of demographic, archeological, paleontological, and environmental records. We also have a strong interest in theory and methods development.

Students and postdocs may work on a range of projects in evolutionary and human genetics, computational archeology, and human-environment interactions, including 
  • Methods to combine genetic and archeological data for inference
  • Theoretical modeling of sexual selection and polygenic traits
  • Computational modeling of population dynamics during climatic change
  • Adaptation to malaria in the Americas
  • Other proposed research within the scope of lab interests is welcome.

    The Goldberg lab combines theory and computational data analysis; interest in biological applications of programming, statistics, and/or mathematics is required. Candidates should contact Amy Goldberg with a CV and brief statement of research interests. Informal inquiries welcome.
