Postdoc in France: mating system transitions

A one-year post-doc position is open at Roscoff's Biological Station
(France), to develop theoretical models on the evolutionary causes and
consequences of mating system transitions. This is part of a
collaborative project (ANR TRANS) between five French labs, involving
theoretical and genomic studies of mating system transitions in
Angiosperms; the post-doc will be able to interact with other
theoreticians in Montpellier (Sylvain Glémin), Lille (Sylvain Billiard)
and Roscoff (Denis Roze).

Different research axes will be possible, including the dynamics of
mating system modifier genes under various modes of selection, effects
of population structure and spatial heterogeneity, and consequences of
shifts in mating system (for example on the evolution of mutation rates
or genome architecture). We are looking for a candidate with a strong
background in mathematical and/or computational modeling, and interest
in evolutionary genetics. French skills are not required. The post-doc
could start in Nov-Dec 2012, or early 2013.

Informal enquiries and applications should be sent to Denis Roze
( Applications should include a CV, statement of
interest and contact information for 2 or 3 references. Applications
should be sent before mid-September.
