This grant supports all types of projects have a link with the protection of endangered species of the Swiss herpetofauna, both scientific projects of basic or applied research, as well as awareness related to one or more species or their habitats.
See the link below for details and application. Dealine for project submission: 15 september.
The PhD project will experimentally address the phenotypic and transcriptional plasticity in populations of Buckler Mustard from different environments. In particular, the candidate will generate high-throughput sequence data from experimental populations of diploid and polyploid lineages and assess the impact of duplicated genes along with environmental changes on adaptation to contrasted ecological niches. In collaboration with a postdoc focused on the molecular underpinnings of genome dynamics, the candidate will disentangle the contributions of genomic and environmental factors in driving radiation in the Alps.
This position is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation for a maximum of four years. The anticipated starting date is July 2018 (or soon thereafter). Please, send your application as a single pdf to Prof. Christian Parisod (firstname.lastname@example.org). It must include: (i) a letter describing your past research experience and explaining your particular skills and motivation for this position, (ii) an abstract of your master thesis, (iii) a current CV (with publications; if any), and (iv) contact details of two referees. Applications should be submitted before May 31st 2018, but will be considered until the position is filled.
