Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application: Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Biology (UFV-PA 2012/67)
 

Summary: Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application:
Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Biology (UFV-PA 2012/67)
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 (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 research will aim at improving our understanding of the
architecture of sexually antagonistic genetic variation. Insects (seed beetles and/or
fruit flies) will serve as main model systems and the research will primarily employ
quantitative genetic techniques. The research will establish a series of discrete
genotypes and use crosses between these to describe and understand the
architecture of sexually antagonistic genetic variation. Traits in focus are sex specific
measures of life history traits (especially metabolic parameters) and life-time fitness.
