PhD student / doktorand extended application deadline 15 August

PhD student in Zoological Systematics

We have extended the application deadline to 15 August for the PhD position below so it is still an option if you have a fresh MSc or will get one in the nearest future. We invite applications for a four-year PhD position based at the Swedish Museum of Natural History in Stockholm. PhD students at the museum are admitted to the PhD programme at the Department of Zoology, Stockholm University.

The project is aimed at analysing species diversity of the marine meiofauna group Acoelomorpha in Sweden, estimate the phylogeny of select groups and describe new species. The efficacy of current standard methods of meiofauna extraction will be tested against eDNA sampling. The project includes fieldwork at marine labs where specimens will be collected, identified, documented, and prepared for downstream analyses. The successful candidate will be supervised by Prof. Ulf Jondelius.

In order to meet the general entry requirements, the applicant must have completed a second-cycle degree, completed courses equivalent to at least 240 higher education credits, of which 60 credits must be in the second cycle, or have otherwise acquired equivalent knowledge in Sweden or elsewhere.
In order to meet the specific entry requirements, the applicants must have completed at least 120 higher education credits in biology, and at least 30 credits from a degree project within zoological systematics, marine biology, evolutionary biology, bioinformatics, or a similar subject.

Experience in the study of microscopic animals, marine biological fieldwork, analysis of nucleotide sequence data, molecular lab techniques and a strong interest in biodiversity are important qualifications.

The position is for four years. A new position as a PhD student is first for one year and then normally renewed for up to two years at a time. Closing date for the application is 15 June
