Trondheim, Norway: PhD position in Eco-Evolutionary Genomics PDF Tisk Email
A PhD position is available in the research group of Associate Professor
Henrik Jensen, Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics, Norwegian University
of Science and Technology. 
The goal of the PhD project is to improve our understanding of ecological
and evolutionary dynamics in time and space in natural populations.
will be achieved by 1) identifying the genetic architecture of various
phenotypic traits associated with individual fitness (survival and
reproduction), and by 2) examine how the traits' genetic architecture
affect the ecological and evolutionary dynamics in natural populations. We
are seeking a person with a genuine interest in these questions.
The project will use state-of-the-art genomic and eco-evolutionary
data from a unique house sparrow (Passer domesticus) model system
in Norway. Multi-generational data from natural and experimental
(i.e. artificial selection and <common garden>) populations in the wild is
available. Phenotypic data include individual measurements of morphology,
physiology (metabolic rate), behavior, and life-history traits such
as breeding phenology, reproductive success and lifespan. The genomic
data consists of 200K SNP genotypes for hundreds of individuals in both
natural and experimental populations.
