Missions

Key responsibilities will depend on the applicant's expertise. Applicants with stronger experience in functional genomics will be expected to develop and implement transgenic manipulations that target candidate genes for cryptic coloration in insects. Applicants with stronger experience in modeling will be expected to bridge the development of evolutionary models based in population genetics with ecological models based in population dynamics and community ecology. In either case, the applicant will be required to integrate with the current research team and occasionally aid with basic data collection and administrative matters that pertain to research (e.g., getting quotes for sequencing projects).

Skills

The applicant should hold a Ph.D. degree or equivalent. We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow with a solid conceptual and formal background in either: (1) functional genomics (slightly preferred) or (2) theoretical modeling. Excellent written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, a strong work ethic, and the ability to think creatively are required.

Work Context

Evolutionary and ecological processes can affect one another. For example, evolutionary adaptation within species can affect population dynamics or species interactions in communities, and thus ecosystem functioning. This position is part of a larger research project funded by the European Research Council (Consolidator Grant to P. Nosil, 2 million Euros) to investigate the community and ecosystem level consequences of evolution within species, in this case the stick-insect Timema cristinae. The project will specifically test for reciprocal interactions and feedback loops between ecological and evolutionary processes. Key publications pertaining to the project are Farkas et al. 2013 Current Biology and Nosil et al. 2018 Science
