Postdoc/PhD position in Evolutionary Ecology and Functional Genomics

One Postdoc or PhD position in evolutionary ecology and functional genomics is available at the Faculty of Biology at Bielefeld University in the Evolutionary Biology group (PD Dr Tim Schmoll, see http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/(en)/biologie/Evolutionsbiologie) in collaboration with the Department of Animal Behaviour (Dr Peter Korsten, see http://www.uni-bielefeld.de/biologie/animalbehaviour). The position is available immediately for 24 months (Postdoc) or until 31.12.2021 (PhD) and is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the collaborative research centre (SFB/TRR 212) A Novel Synthesis of Individualisation across Behaviour, Ecology and Evolution: Niche Choice, Niche Conformance, Niche Construction (NC3).
