The Goldberg lab is recruiting postdocs and graduate students. We are a computational lab with occasional wet lab or field collaborators. We are associated with the departments of Evolutionary Anthropology, Biology, and Mathematics at Duke University. With the knowledge that multiple groups continue to face barriers to inclusion and equity in the sciences, including BIPOC and LGBTQ+ people, we strive to be a supportive environment for everyone. More information and resources available here.

Students and postdocs may work on a range of projects in theoretical and empirical population genetics, disease ecology, and human-environment interactions. Much of our work is in humans and other primates, but study system is flexible. Current projects include evolutionary genetics of malaria, adaptation and demography of admixed populations, primate immunogenetics, genome-structure evolution in primates, and statistical methods to infer recent human population history such as the rise of farming.

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 describe why they are interested in the Goldberg lab and their past research experience.

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