The Friesen lab is seeking a motivated undergraduate student with an interest in computational biology to assist on a series of projects investigating ecological genomics and transcriptomics in non-model species of clover and their nitrogen-fixing bacterial symbionts. Applicants should be comfortable with a command line and preferably a computer cluster; knowledge of at least one programming language and the willingness to use multiple languages will be required. These positions will be primarily computational, but there may be opportunities to participate in data generation if desired. This paid position will require a minimum of 10 hours of work a week; work times can be set to accommodate academic schedules. Candidates will be encouraged to design and implement side research projects that complement larger project goals.
