The University of Gothenburg (Sweden) has three vacancies at the Centre for Marine Evolutionary Biology (CeMEB). The successful candidates will join an international team working on the evolutionary biology of Littorina based in the Department of Marine Science, both at Tjärnö Marine Laboratory and in Gothenburg, and at the University of Sheffield.

The three open positions are:

Postdoctoral position in marine population genomics

The candidate is expected to lead and perform the bioinformatic and population genomic analyses of multiple data types using standard software and custom scripts and to present the results of the analyses in manuscript(s) and at conferences, and communicate the findings at various dissemination activities. The candidate is also expected to take part in other research-related activities at the department, and within the research group in particular. Full details here.

PhD Studentship in marine evolutionary genomics

The student is expected to work on some combination of field or laboratory tests of the phenotypic and fitness effects of inversions, genomic signatures of inversion history and selection, and/or models of inversion evolution tailored to our observations of the Littorina model system. Full details here.

Technician: Marine evolutionary biology

The candidate is expected to be flexible, contributing to a wide range of research activities in the field, working with the snails and in the molecular biology laboratory. They will be able to work as part of a team, keeping accurate records and communicating effectively with other team members. The candidate is also expected to take part in other research-related and maintenance activities at the department, and within the research group in particular. Full details here.

Applications must be submitted through the university's online application portal (link above).
