Diese Stellenanzeige ist abgelaufen. Finden Sie hier zahlreiche ähnliche Jobs.

Within the DFG-funded project "€œRelative effects of local and regional factors as drivers for genetic diversity and functional trait diversity of plant communities on Baltic uplift islands"€ the Department of Community Ecology is offering a PhD position (65%, 3 years) starting 01.02.2015.
The research project will focus on the effects of landscape structure and habitat conditions on patterns of genetic variation in plants on archipelagos in the Baltic sea using SNP data.

Your duties:
- Plant sample collection in three island archipelagos in Sweden
- Sample preparation for genotyping-by-sequencing, SNP-genotyping
- Population genomic analyses of genetic population structure for multiple species in island and mainland landscapes. Testing for effects of landscape structure, isolation, land use and habitat conditions and test of the "€œsouthern richness-northern purity" hypothesis
- Community genetics analysis of relationship between genetic variation, species and functional diversity
- Work in an inter-disciplinary project together with the Institute of Landscape Ecology, Justus-Liebig-University Giessen and the Institute of Ecology, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

Your profile:
- You are an enthusiastic, dynamic and independent student broadly interested in studying the interface between plant population genetics, landscape ecology and evolution.
- An excellent master's degree in a relevant field of research, including biology, bioinformatics, molecular ecology
- Expertise in molecular genetic approaches, ideally experience with genotyping-by-sequencing methods (RAD-seq, GBS)
- Proficiency in genetic data analysis and bioinformatics experience - Deep interest in biodiversity at all hierarchical levels
- Excellent knowledge of spoken and written English and ambition to publish in international journals
- High motivation to work in an interdisciplinary team and interest in fieldwork in Sweden for up to three months

We offer:
- Excellent technical facilities which are without parallel
- The freedom you need to bridge the difficult gap between high level basic research and application oriented research & development
