Tübingen, Germany: Postdoc in evolutionary genomics of behaviour in harvest mice Tisk
Postdoc Position in evolutionary genomics of behaviour
***The application deadline for below postdoctoral position has been
extended till July 8, 2016***
University of Tübingen, Institute of Evolution and Ecology, Group of
Comparative Zoology
We have an open position (2 years) for a PostDoc with a strong interest in
the genetic/genomic basis of phenotypic traits. In a project related to the
genetic basis of behavior, we will use already available phenotypic data on
personality and cognitive traits from a captive population of European
harvest mice to search for genetic variation that correlates with behavioral
profiles. We seek a candidate with strong molecular lab skills, including
Sanger and next generation sequencing, and strong bioinformatics skills,
preferably with training in genome wide association studies. A theoretical
background in the evolutionary genetics of behaviour would be an asset. 
Tübingen University offers a large community of researchers working in the
field of evolution and ecology of model and non-model systems, joined
together in the Institute for Evolution and Ecology
ologie/institute/evolutionecology.html). The successful candidate will join
the Comparative Zoology group of Katharina Foerster. We offer molecular lab
facilities within the group and through collaborations with the Max Planck
Institute Tübingen. Further lab support and computational facilities are
available through the Quantitative Biology Center on campus
The working language in the group is English. However, for teaching and
everyday life at the University and in Tübingen, some knowledge of German or
the willingness to learn the language will be advantageous.
Founded in 1477, Tübingen University has influenced the historical town
significantly. Tübingen today remains a place of research and teaching. In
