PhD-position in evolutionary genomics, Fribourg University

PhD-position in evolutionary genomics is available in a collaborative project of the research groups of Dieter Ebert (University of Basel, Switzerland) and Christoph Haag (University of Fribourg, Switzerland).
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with interest in
evolutionary genomics. A solid background in bio-informatics, genomics,
and/or evolutionary genetics is helpful. The position is funded to
work on mitotic recombination during asexual reproduction in Daphnia,
but the exact project will be worked out together with the successful
candidate. Previous experience with Daphnia is not required, yet excellent
written, verbal, and interpersonal skills, good work ethics, and the
ability to think creatively and critically are desired. The starting
date is from November 2011 onwards.
The PhD student will be mainly located at Fribourg University, but will
work in close collaboration with the group in Basel, where a second
PhD student works on a related project. Details about the groups can be
found on the following pages:

Please send your application by E-mail to Christoph Haag
(christoph.haag@unifr.ch). Applications should include a single
pdf-file containing CV, a list of publications and a 1 page description
of your research interests and motivation. Please give names and
email addresses of two persons who are willing to write a letter of
recommendation. Applications received before 30 September 2010 will be
given full consideration. Interviews will be held as soon as possible
afterwards.
