Description

The 2014 Doctoral Research Fellowship in Evolutionary Genomics project is part of a larger research program on “Sperm-pathogen interactions and the evolution of ejaculate antimicrobial defences in passerine birds”.

Animals are constantly exposed to pathogens, and the ability of individuals to combat microbial attack is an important component of fitness.

The position is affiliated with the Sex and Evolution Research Group (SERG) at NHM and the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) at UiO, and may also include a period of time based in the laboratory of Dr Steve Dorus (Syracuse University, USA).

The research team will also include scientists from the USA and Germany. Fieldwork may be conducted at a variety of locations, including Norway and Italy.
