Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application: Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Biology (UFV-PA 2012/68)
 

Summary: Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application:
Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Biology (UFV-PA 2012/68)
at the Animal Ecology Program, the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Evolutionary
Biology Centre (EBC) with starting date being May 1
st
, 2012, or as soon as possible
after this date. The Evolutionary Biology Center hosts one of the world's largest
aggregations of evolutionary biologists, and is a prime research environment for a
wide range of fields in evolutionary biology and genetics (see
"http://www.ebc.uu.se/" for more information). The working atmosphere is very
international with English as our operational language. Uppsala University is the
oldest university in Scandinavia and the city of Uppsala is a vibrant student town with
beautiful surroundings conveniently situated 40 minutes with train from Stockholm.
Brief research outline: The holder of this position will direct research towards an
evolutionary understanding of the genomics of metabolic rate. Insects (seed beetles)
will serve as the model system. The candidate will first complete a collaborative effort
to produce a de novo complete genome sequence of our main model system
(Callosobruchus maculatus) which is currently underway. The holder of this position
will then concentrate on the genetics of metabolic rate using focussed genotype-
phenotype matching and upon sex-specific selection on discrete genotypes using
