Vienna, Austria: PhD, ecol constraints of fish breeding systems PDF Tisk Email
Within the project "Ecological constraints of fish breeding systems"
funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) a three-year PhD student
position is available at the Konrad Lorenz Institute of Ethology (KLIVV)
at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna.  The PhD candidate will
work on the hormonal basis of parental care behavior, induced polygyny
or egg cannibalism.  The definite subject of the PhD project will depend
on the candidate´s qualifications and interests.
We are looking for a highly motivated, outstanding student with a
background in behavioral ecology: experimental design, hands-on work
with live animals and good statistical skills (if possible including R)
are a prerequisite.  Experience in hormone analyses is a plus. Excellent
written and oral communication skills in English and the ability to work
in a team are a must, a MSc degree (or equivalent) in a related discipline
(e.g., zoology, evolution, ecology, biology) is expected.
The PhD candidate will be mainly supervised by Dr. Franziska C. Schädelin
and Priv.-Doz. Dr. Richard H. Wagner, but the student is also expected
to interact with Prof. Sigal Balshine and her group in Hamilton/Canada,
including short visits at the collaborating laboratory abroad.
As a part of the Department of Integrative Biology and Evolution of
the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, the KLIVV offers an
international and stimulating research environment. The successful PhD
candidate will join the University´s PhD-program.  Vienna is a highly
attractive city in beautiful surroundings, with a multicultural population
and many educational and recreational opportunities.
The gross salary is at around 28.000 Euro per year before tax
(“Bruttogehalt”),  including social and health security according
to the personal costs provided by the Austrian Science Fund.
