Default PhD on C. elegans-pathogen coevolution



PhD on Experimental host-parasite coevolution

The PhD project aims at a comprehensive experimental test of the
consequences of host-parasite co-evolution. It is based on a selection
experiment followed by extensive phenotypic and molecular analysis.
The approach relies on a unique model system, consisting of the
nematode Caenorhabditis elegans as a host and its micro-parasite
Bacillus thuringiensis, which are both ideally suited to experimental
analysis. The results of this project are expected to have an impact
on four biological research themes that are of particular current
interest: the animal innate immune system, bacterial virulence,
life-history trade-offs, and the generation of biological diversity.

The project is supervised by Dr. Hinrich Schulenburg and funded by the
German Science Foundation (SCHU 1415/5-1; position according to 13
TV-L/2). It is based in the Department of Animal Evolutionary Ecology
at the University of Tübingen, Germany. The department is active in
various fields of evolutionary ecology and it provides an
international and interactive atmosphere.

Requirements for the position: High motivation, excellent background
in evolutionary ecology (especially host-parasite evolution) and
statistics, knowledge of basic molecular techniques (PCR, fragment
analysis), handling of complex experimental set-up, teamwork, ideally
some experience with C. elegans or bacteria, fluency in English.

Please send applications with CV, brief statement of research
interests, and two references, as a pdf-file by email to
hinrich.schulenburg<at>uni-tuebingen.de. Deadline for applications:
1st June 2007. Start of position: September 2007. Women are especially
encouraged to apply. Severely handicapped people will be
preferentially considered in case of equivalent qualifications. For
further details + questions, send an email to
hinrich.schulenburg<at>uni-tuebingen.de or check:
