Basel, Switzerland: PhD to study the early phases of adaptive divergence in East African cichlid fis PDF Tisk Email
A PhD position is available in the group of Walter Salzburger at the
Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Switzerland.
The aim of the project is to study the early phases of adaptive divergence
in East African cichlid fish. 
The project is highly integrative and
involves a combination of RAD and genome sequencing, comparative genomics,
geometric morphometric analyses and ecological assessment. Moreover,
a series of behavioural experiments and tests on phenotypic plasticity
will be carried out in the lab as well as in the field. The position is
funded for 3 years by the Swiss National Science Foundation and will be
based at the Zoological Institute in Basel, but will include field-work
at Lake Tanganyika. Starting date is November/December 2014.
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with interests in evolution,
speciation, ecology and genomics. A master degree in Biology is required,
experience in molecular biology, genomics and/or behavioural experiments
are a plus. Applicants should have high social skills, a good level
of written and spoken English and should be able to work under field
conditions in Africa.
Please send your application, including a CV and a copy of
your degree, and the names of two referees to Dr. Bernd Egger
