The Post-doctoral Research Associate will work with CeMEB members Professor Roger Butlin and Dr Anja Westram to advance a NERC-funded project on the routes to speciation in the coastal gastropod, Littorina saxatilis. The project is focused on the roles of divergent selection and incompatibility in speciation and requires a mix of skills including molecular ecology laboratory techniques, analysis of next generation sequence and genotype data, phenotypic (including behavioural) observations and field sampling with the help of collaborators. You will be expected to have a strong commitment to research in evolutionary genetics and a special interest in processes of speciation.
You should hold a PhD (or equivalent experience) in evolutionary genetics and have experience of research in evolutionary genetics. Experience in the handling of sequence and/ or expression data and experience of constructing bioinformatics pipelines is desirable.
The position is available from 1 May 2017, or as soon as possible thereafter, until 30 September 2019
