PhD in climate change effects (UK)

Support is available for a NERC funded PhD position under the supervision
of Kevin Parsons, Neil Metcalfe, and Pat Monaghan at the University of
Glasgow for research on the effects of climate change on morphological,
behavioural, and genetic traits in threespine sticklebacks (Gasterosteus
aculeatus). Candidates should have a strong interest in ecology and or
developmental biology. Experience with general statistics and molecular
techniques by the candidate would be desirable. The project will involve
fieldwork in Iceland. The position is expected to start in October 2013
or possibly earlier.

If interested please e-mail a statement of research interests, your
CV and the names and e-mail addresses of two people willing to act as
academic references to Kevin Parsons, (email:

Training Opportunities: The questions addressed in this project are at
the interface between ecology, evolution, development, and genetics,
which will provide the student with exciting opportunities to integrate

Deadline: December 1, 2012 (for initial shortlisting); applications to
remain open until the positions are filled.

The candidate must have been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the
3-year period preceding the date of application for an award, not wholly
