TweetThis! PhD position in Evolutionary Ecology (evolution of sex)

Institute for Limnology (Mondsee) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria

Application deadline: 15 December 2008

A 3-year PhD position is available in the lab of Dr. Claus-Peter Stelzer at the Institute for Limnology in Mondsee (near Salzburg, Austria), to study the causes and consequences of transitions to obligate
parthenogenesis in monogonont rotifers. The project is a combination of laboratory experiments, molecular techniques, and field sampling. The summary of the project funded by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF), as well as further information on the lab can be found at http://www.oeaw.ac.at/limno/personnel/stelzer/stelzer.htm

Applicants should have a Master’s or diploma degree in biology, or arelated field. Experience in experimental design, statistics and PCR-based molecular genetic methods would be advantageous, as well as some “affinity towards using technical equipment” (e.g. our automated culture systems).

The Institute for Limnology is located in the Salzkammergut lake area, 30 km east of the City of Salzburg - which is also the location of the nearest university. The Institute has a staff complement of
approximately 25, including 10 research scientists, who work on various areas in ecophysiology and evolutionary ecology of aquatic organisms.

The PhD student will receive a salary according to the FWF pay scale.
Applicants should send a cover letter summarizing their research background and interest in the position, a CV, and contact information for two referees (everything as one PDF document) to
claus-peter.stelzeroeaw.ac.at, by 15. Dec. 2008. The ideal starting date would be 1. Feb. 2009.
