Project title: Genetic history of Poles
Project Description: The general aim of this project is to reconstruct the genetic history of the present population of Poland. We will perform analyzes of ancient and modern genomes to find answer to several importantquestions: (1) What was the population structure and genetic heterogeneity of human population inhabiting the territory of the present day Poland and was it undergoing changes during the last 4,000 years? (2) Werechanges in population structure connectedwith major events in Polish population history? (3) Do we have in our genomes (and how big it is) an admixture of genes we inherited after Vandals, Goths and other tribes which invaded East-Central Europe during the period of Great Migrations? (4) How bigare the genetic differences between various subpopulations in Poland and populations occupying the neighboring countries?
Key responsibilities include:
Isolation and amplification of DNA from archaeological materials. DNA sequencing and analysis of the data obtained.
Profile of candidates/requirements:
PhD in Molecular biology or Genetics. Knowledge of DNA isolation, amplification and sequencing techniques.
Motivation letter, CV, Copy of the PhD diploma, minimum one recommendation letter.
Stimulating and friendly work environment. Well equipped laboratory.
