The Goldberg lab is recruiting postdocs and graduate students. We are a computational lab with occasional wet lab or field collaborators. 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 Brazil, Sweden, Croatia, and throughout the US.

Students and postdocs may work on a range of projects in theoretical and empirical population genetics, computational archaeology, and human-environment interactions. Much of our work is in humans and other primates, but study system is flexible. 

Current projects include mathematical models of malaria transmission, inference of nonrandom mating in admixed human populations, primate immunogenetics, and genome-structure evolution in primates. Individuals with a background in genome assembly or primate disease ecology are particularly encouraged to apply.

The Goldberg lab combines theory and computational data analysis; interest in biological applications of programming, statistics, and/or mathematics is required. Postdoc candidates should contact Amy Goldberg with a CV and brief statement of research interests. Candidates should be specific about their interests in our work.

We accept PhD students through the department of Evolutionary Anthropology, Computational Biology & Bioinformatics graduate program, and the University Program in Genetics & Genomics. All programs support PhD students with a competitive stipend.

We welcome students to start full-time during the summer. Undergraduate students interested in joining the lab for a summer should fill out this google form

We strive to be an inclusive environment for all.
