About the position

A PhD fellowship is available at the Faculty of Biosciences and Aquaculture, Nord University (Bodø, Norway) on the project: Genetic and non-genetic adaptation in stickleback fishes.

The position is for 3 years and will be available from September 1st. 2019.

A combination of evolutionary potential, acclimation and microbial environment determine the capacity of species to adapt to local selective environments. Low evolutionary potential might be accounted for by regulatory or epigenetic modes of adaptation, while intestinal microbiota assist in the establishment to new ecological niches. The aim of this PhD project is to compare these different mechanisms in two eco-evolutionary models, the three-spined and nine-spined stickleback. The research involves a combination of field studies, molecular work, genomics, bioinformatics and experiments.

Qualification requirements

The candidate should have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in biology, (aquatic) ecology, environmental sciences or equivalent fields. Profound knowledge and hands-on experience in molecular biology and bioinformatics is required. Interest and prior experience with experimental work and fish breeding would be an asset.
