Postgraduate PhD position in Animal Ecology - sexually
antagonistic genetic variation
at the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Evolutionary Biology Centre (EBC) with a
tentative 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.
Our graduate school offers a creative and stimulating environment and is very rich in
seminars, courses and possibilities to interact with other scholars and students (see
"http://www.ebc.uu.se/education/") ­ graduate students recently ranked Uppsala
University in first place among all institutions in Europe in the subject of biology (CHE
European ranking). Uppsala University is the oldest university in Scandinavia and the
city of Uppsala is a vibrant student town with beautiful surroundings conveniently
situated 35 minutes by train from Stockholm.
Brief research outline: Although males and females share much of the same genome,
selection can be distinct in the two sexes. Sexually antagonistic loci are those loci
