Postdoctoral and PhD-student Positions - Reconstitution of pollinator-mediated speciation in Petunia

ERC-funded Postdoctoral and PhD-student Positions
Reconstitution of pollinator-mediated speciation in Petunia

University of Bern, Switzerland

Applications are invited from Postdoctoral scientists and PhD candidates who have a strong interest in applying genetic and genomic approaches to questions of ecology and evolution. We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment with high end facilities. You will join a small and active international group of scientists who address exciting research questions.

The ERC-supported project aims to understand the molecular-genetic basis of pollinator-mediated speciation in the genus Petunia. The project will identify all the major genes involved and use gene editing to study their effects on the preferences of bees, hawkmoths and hummingbirds.

We are looking for two postdocs and two PhD students with expertise in bioinformatics, population genetics, molecular biology, molecular breeding and animal behavior.

The positions are for up to 4 years and available immediately. Applications will be continuously evaluated until the deadline of June 20, 2017. Your application should be a single pdf file with curriculum vitae, copies of diplomas and transcripts, scientifically appealing motivation letter and contact details of three references.
