Announcement for 2 PhD positions in the fields of pollination / chemical ecology, population genetics/genomics and evolutionary ecology to suitable candidates.
The Department of Ecology & Evolution at the University of Salzburg is offering 2 PhD positions for three years each in the FWF-funded project „Local pollinator adaptation in deceptive Arum maculatum" (Project leaders: Dötterl, Comes, Hörger)
One of the doctoral researchers will be mainly responsible for the ecological and chemo-ecological approaches (dynamic headspace, gas chromatography / mass spectrometry; electroantennographic detection, behavioral assays, multivariate statistical analyses), the other student will focus on the genomic approaches (Rad-seq, meta-barcoding, bioinformatics) and correlative analyses (ecological-genomic). Both students are expected to perform field work (scent sampling, pollinator observations, reciprocal transplants) and supervise field assistants.
Please send your application
(Letter of motivation, CV, certificates, contacts of two potential referees) in electronic form as a single pdf file to Univ.-Prof. Dr. Stefan Dötterl, Stefan.Doetterl@sbg.ac.at. Please also indicate your preference for the ecological or the genomic project. The start date is scheduled for April / May 2017. The positions will be filled as soon as suitable applicants are found. In case you have any requests, please contact
