A PhD position is available at the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE), a joint research institute between the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Pompeu Fabra University (UPF) located in Barcelona, Spain. The student will join a collaborative research group studying the molecular process and functional consequences of adaptation.
The project includes a combination of state-of-the-art and classical techniques such as next-generation sequencing data, population genetics, gene expression and experimental evolution analyses that will be applied to the study of mutations identified in natural populations.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates willing to work both independently and in collaboration with other members of the research group. Applicants should have a degree in Biology or a related field. In addition, laboratory experience in molecular genetics and/or computational biology is desired.
Interested candidates should send a CV and statement of interest to Dr. Josefa González: josefa.gonzalez@ibe.upf-csic.es
A first round of applications will be accepted until 15th September 2011.
Later applications will be accepted until 15th December 2011.
