Postdoc comparando plasticidad fenotípica y adaptaciones térmicas con anfibios como modelo.

Oferta compartida por Nuria

A two-year position as a postdoctoral researcher in ecological genomics at Animal ecology/Department of Ecology and Genetics, Uppsala University.

The post-doc position is available in the Swedish Research Council-funded project ‘Evolution along environmental gradients: does non-adaptive plasticity drive climate adaptation and species range limits?’ The goal is to understand the relative roles of phenotypic plasticity and genetic adaptation for thermal performance at different spatial scales using natural amphibian populations as models. Previous studies in these systems have shown the importance of countergradient variation in local climatic adaptation. The successful candidate will conduct laboratory experiments and gene expression analyses with populations collected along replicated climatic gradients in northern Europe to characterize plasticity along the geographical range of the moor frog. In addition, the candidate will participate in genomic analyses of material collected earlier across smaller spatial scales.

The position is available at the research group of Prof Anssi Laurila

Qualifications required: PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in of evolutionary ecology, ecological genetics, molecular ecology or similar field. The PhD degree must have been obtained no more than three years prior to the application deadline. Experience with molecular genetic analyses is a requirement for the position.

Deadline to apply is 2021-11-08. Starting date 2022-01-10, or as agreed.

Uppsala is a great town to live in, and the Department of Ecology and Genetics is an international environment with staff and students from all over the world. Our research spans from evolutionary ecology and genetics to studies of ecosystems. For more information, see
