2016-10-30  -  evolutionary genetics of sexual dimorphism  -  

A Ph.D. student position is available beginning February 2017 to study the evolutionary genetics of sexual dimorphism. The position is based in Lausanne, Switzerland, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), supervised by Dr. Brian Hollis. The project will combine experimental work in Drosophila melanogaster with molecular genetic and bioinformatic approaches (e.g. population genomics, genome-wide association, expression profiling) to better understand the evolution and genetic basis of differences between the sexes. There is considerable scope for the Ph.D. student to shape the project and develop his or her own research questions.
