Two postdocs in Evol Biology (UK)

1) Postdoctoral Researcher in Theoretical Evolutionary Biology

We seek a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Theoretical Evolutionary
Biology to join the research group of Dr Jane Reid at the University of
Aberdeen, UK.

The post is central to a major European Research Council-funded project
that aims to 1) build new theory explaining the evolution and persistence
of reproductive strategies, and 2) test this theory using >20 years of
complete life-history and pedigree data from free-living song sparrows
(Melospiza melodia).

The Research Fellow will develop new (co)evolutionary theory of
reproductive strategies, specifically polyandry and inbreeding, using
mathematical and/or simulation modelling approaches. They will work in
close collaboration with Dr Reid, other members of the ERC project team
and key international collaborators to develop this theory and test it
using wild population data.  They will also have substantial opportunities
to develop their own ideas and approaches to the overall problem.

The post provides an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated
researcher with expertise in mathematical or simulation modelling,
and/or quantitative or theoretical evolutionary biology, and interest
in confronting rigorous theory with empirical data.  It provides an
opportunity to work within a dynamic and successful international
research team with ample opportunities for further international
collaboration, high-profile publication and career development (see
http://www.abdn.ac.uk/biologicalsci/staff/details/jane.reid).

The post is funded by an ERC Starting Grant to Dr Jane Reid.  It will
be offered for a period of 3 years in the first instance.

The post is open to any nationality. Should you require a visa to
undertake paid employment in the UK you will be required to fulfil the
minimum points criteria to be granted a Certificate of Sponsorship and
Tier 2 visa.

Informal enquiries are extremely welcome and should be directed to Dr
Jane Reid (jane.reid@abdn.ac.uk).

Biological Sciences).




2) Postdoctoral Researcher in Evolutionary Quantitative Genetics

We seek a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Evolutionary Quantitative
Genetics to join the research group of Dr Jane Reid at the University
of Aberdeen, UK.

The post is central to a major European Research Council-funded project
that aims to 1) build new theory explaining the evolution and persistence
of reproductive strategies, and 2) test this theory using >20 years of
complete life-history and pedigree data from free-living song sparrows
(Melospiza melodia).

The Research Fellow will develop and implement statistical quantitative
genetic and phenotypic analyses of the song sparrow dataset, specifically
with respect to polyandry, inbreeding, inbreeding avoidance and fitness
components in males and females.  They will work in close collaboration
with Dr Reid, other members of the ERC project team and key international
collaborators to undertake appropriate analyses and thereby test key
components of evolutionary theory.  They will also have substantial
flexibility to develop their own ideas and approaches to the overall
problem, potentially including opportunities for fieldwork as well as
data analysis.

The post provides an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated
researcher with expertise in quantitative genetics, mating
system variation and/or evolutionary biology, and interest in
confronting evolutionary theory with empirical data.  It provides an
opportunity to work within a dynamic and successful international
research team, with ample opportunities for further international
collaboration, high-profile publication and career development (see
http://www.abdn.ac.uk/biologicalsci/staff/details/jane.reid).

The post is funded by an ERC Starting Grant to Dr Jane Reid.  It will
be offered for a period of 3 years in the first instance.

Informal enquiries are extremely welcome and should be directed to Dr

The post is open to any nationality. Should you require a visa to

minimum points criteria to be granted a Certificate of Sponsorship and
Tier 2 visa.
