#### PhD position for evolutionary-developmental biology of
biomineralisation ####

A PhD-position is available to work with Professor Daniel J. Jackson in
the Department of Geobiology, University of Göttingen, Germany.

position will be available from August 1st 2015 (and is limited to 3
years). Salary is in accordance with the German state regulated public
service salary scale (50% TV-L bracket 13).

The Jackson group is broadly interested in the molecular processes
by which metazoans have evolved the ability to form mineralised body
parts. We are currently developing the freshwater snail Lymnaea stagnalis
as a model organism with which to address these questions. We are
developing a range of modern molecular techniques and have established
extensive sequence datasets for this research on Lymnaea. With these
modern resources it is envisaged that the PhD candidate would marry
the wealth of histological knowledge of shell molluscan formation that
exists in the classical literature with insights mined from our modern
resources. The position would therefore be well suited to an individual
with some molecular biology skills and/or familiarity with the analysis
of large computational datasets such as RNASeq and whole genome data.

Candidates should hold a master degree with a major in either evolution,
developmental biology, molecular biology, or a related field. In addition
to their academic qualifications, candidates should have excellent
communication and team-working skills, be committed to the topic and
to working in a dedicated, interdisciplinary research environment. The
working language of the group is English, and applicants from abroad
are encouraged to apply.

The University of Göttingen seeks to increase the participation of women
in areas in which they are currently under represented and therefore
explicitly urges women to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude
will be favoured.

Applications, in English, must include:

1. A full academic CV including a list of all published or unpublished
   academic work.
2. A 1-2 page summary outlining the candidate's motivation for applying
   for this particular position.
3. A letter of reference from 1 former supervisor (Diploma or Masters).

Please send your electronic application directly to
djackso”at”uni-goettingen.de.  The application deadline is 1st July,
2015. Applications will be deleted after five months.
