Faculty of Natural Science and Technology Department of Biology

POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY (EVOLVABILITY OF ALLOMETRY)
A 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in quantitative genetics is available at
the Department of Biology, Norwegian University of Science and Technology
(NTNU), Trondheim, Norway. The position is related to the project
“Evolvability of Allometry”, funded by the Research Council of Norway.

The project involves theoretical and experimental research in quantitative
genetics related to the evolvability of allometry. We are looking for
a motivated candidate with a solid knowledge in evolutionary biology
and quantitative genetics. The post-doc will have responsibility for
artificial selection work on a plant species but is also expected
to develop his/her own research in relation to the evolution of
allometry. Because the project has a theoretical component we will
favour candidates with a solid knowledge in modelling and statistics. The
project is managed by Christophe Pelabon at NTNU (Trondheim), in close
collaboration with Thomas F. Hansen (University of Oslo) and although the
main working place is Trondheim, the post-doc will be able to interact
with the teams at both institutions. Ability to goal-oriented work,
ability to deliver, oral and written presentation of research results,
and good co-operation abilities will be emphasized.

The post-doc will be formally employed by the Faculty of Natural Sciences
at the NTNU, and will become a member of the Department of Biology. The
Department of Biology has 36 members of faculty (professors and
associate professors), 22 research scientists and about 70 PhD students
and post docs. The department has research programs in evolutionary
biology, population genetics, aquatic and terrestrial ecology,
conservation biology and biodiversity, ethology, molecular biology,
cell biology, plant and animal physiology, toxicology, aquaculture,
and marine biology. There is considerable collaboration between the
disciplines. More information about the Department of Biology can be
found at: www.ntnu.no/biologi/english<http://www.ntnu.no/biologi/english>

The positions adhere to the Norwegian Government’s policy of balanced
ethnicity, age and gender. A NTNU objective is to increase the number
of females in scientific positions. Female applicants are therefore
encouraged to apply.

The appointment will be made according to the general regulations
regarding university employees. Post doctors are remunerated in salary
code 1352, normally at wage level 57 (level LR24) on the Norwegian
Government pay scale, gross NOK 455 900 per year before tax. There is 2%
deduction for superannuation.

or Professor Thomas Hansen (tel +47 22 85 45 21, email:
thomas.f.hansen@bio.uio.no for further
information about the postdoc, and in case of questions regarding the
application procedure.

are well suited for it. Applications should also include a CV with a
complete publication list, 3 selected publications (or manuscripts),
documentation of educational background and other relevant experience,
and 3 named references (incl. email and phone no.). Please include a brief
description of the applicant’s contribution in cases of multi-authored
publications (submitted or listed in the CV) where the applicant is not
the first author.
