Tasks and responsibilities: The applicant will be in charge of a research project consisting in the high-throughput characterization of double stranded DNA viruses (herpesviruses, papillomaviruses and polyomaviruses) infecting wild bonobos, chimpanzees and gorillas. The applicant will use the data generated at the bench to reconstruct in silico the evolutionary history of many viral lineages in the hominine lineage and thereby extract local patterns of dsDNA virus evolution, e.g. investigate the co-divergence/cross-species transmission balance. Deadline: 26 June 2016
