PhD position, 3 years: Evolutionary diversification in Cape Erica – ‘next generation’ sequencing; deadline 31st March 2014

Doktorandplats i Tyskland:

We are looking for a motivated candidate with MSc-level background in evolutionary biology, bioinformatics or closely related fields for a three year DFG funded project based at the Johannes Gutenberg-Universität in Mainz, Germany. The candidate will test factors proposed as drivers of the high plant diversity of the Cape Floristic Region, using coalescence-based phylogenetic inference methods on a group of closely related Erica species. Excellent lab skills, including experience with ‘next generation’ DNA sequencing technologies and the related bioinformatics techniques, and good spoken and written English are essential.
