Nice, France: PhD in gene-environment interactions PDF Tisk Email
Graduate position: Developmental plasticity and evolution of the germline
in Caenorhabditis nematodes (CNRS, Nice, France)
A PhD fellowship is available in the Braendle lab at the Institute
of Biology Valrose in Nice. The candidate will be involved in one
of our on-going research projects aiming to integrate mechanistic
and evolutionary understanding of how gene-environment interactions
shape development and evolutionary processes. 
We address this problem
using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, focusing on molecularly
well-characterized systems, such as the  development of the hermaphrodite
germline. These analyses combine developmental and quantitative genetic
approaches and are further complemented by experimental evolution assays
and ecological studies. A current key research focus is the mapping of
natural genetic variation in C. elegans developmental plasticity.
Applicants are expected to be highly motivated and participate in the
planning of the project. Candidates with a background in quantitative
genetics, bioinformatics, or C. elegans biology are particularly
encouraged to apply. This 3-year position is open to all nationalities
and will start in October 2015.
Our team belongs to the Institute of Biology Valrose (IBV), an
international research institute hosting over 20 research groups
working on diverse topics in development, genetics and cell biology. The
institute, located in the city centre, has excellent research facilities
and provides an interactive, stimulating scientific environment.
To apply, send a summary of your research motivation and interests, CV,
names and contact information for three references to Christian Braendle
