Doctorado completísimo y muy interesante en Suecia

4 year attractive PhD-position on integrating an evolutionary perspective and genomic methods to address how insect diversity and evolutionary potential is affected in human-altered landscapes.

The position as a graduate student is at Lund University (
in the Anna Runemark lab, and can be applied for until November 17th.

It is a full time position with a full salary including all

altered landscapes. We will combine bioinformatics, ancient DNA
from museum samples and field work to address these questions. We
seek a candidate with a background including both evolutionary
courses, bioinformatics or advanced R and with a keen interest in
conservation. The exact project will be developed together with the
selected candidate, and will be undertaken in collaboration with Erik
Svensson, Niklas Wahlberg and Maj Rundlöf. The Department of Biology
( is a highly international working
place with a large community of researchers, post docs and more than
80 PhD-students from around the world. The Department has weekly
seminars with invited speakers, Friday pubs, social activities and
several journal clubs. The Runemark lab consists of two post docs,
