The student will carry out population sampling, ecological surveying and analysis of genomic data from 13 Island populations of Berthelot=92s pipit. Our previous work has shown that these populations differ markedly in their ecology (particularly in parasites and altitude), and that natural selection and =93chance=94 interact to shape patterns of genetic variation. We have recently generated sequence data from ~300 key functional genes and ~2000 non-coding regions (using sequence capture and RAD-seq, respectively) from the populations.
A position, funded by the BBSRC, is available for a postdoctoral Research Associate to work on the molecular mechanism of stretch activation in muscle, using insect flight muscle (Lethocerus and Drosophila) as a model system.
