Post-doc on Pop Gen of Partially Asexual Organisms @ INRA, France - Deadline 21 Sept

A post-doc position of 16 months, to start ideally on November 1st or shortly thereafter, is available at INRA Rennes (Western France). The candidate will work in the framework of a National research project (ANR Clonix: and aiming at providing new tools to understand the ecology and evolution of partially clonal organisms. In the context of a revision of "neutral" expectations in terms of genetic characteristic of populations presenting asexual reproduction, the candidate will work in parallel on a set of synthetic dataset derived from simulations and mathematical developments, and from varying organisms exploring different mode of asexuality. The objectives of the postdoc will be 1) to revisit the "neutral" expectations and identify the characteristic distributions of Multi Locus Genotypes under cyclical parthenogenesis, 2) use already-developed (by the team) mathematical method to infer the clonality from temporal empirical and simulated dataset. Analyses and publications of both mathematical methods and their applications will be the main goals of this postdoc. She/He will contribute in validating new mathematical and statistical methods to infer evolutionary forces from partially asexual populations that will be later aggregated within an update of GenClone software. This postdoc will be performed in close interaction with Sophie Arnaud-Haond and one synergetic postdoc (Ifremer, Sète), Fabien Halkett & Stéphane de Mita (INRA, Nancy) Thierry de Meeus (IRD) and Myriam Valero (CNRS, Roscoff).

Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowships @ Uni of Konstanz - Deadline 31 Aug 2014

6 ZIF Marie Curie 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowships (any discipline represented at the University of Konstanz) are available to researchers regardless of their nationality and field of research. They are intended to encourage the transnational mobility of top-level researchers in order to integrate them within the European research area.

2014 EDEN Deadline for Research Exchange Grants is April 30

The Evo-Devo-Eco Network (EDEN) is a program funded by the NSF Research Coordination Network to enable graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to undertake research exchanges in the field of Evo-Devo-Eco, in order to develop or share techniques, protocols and tools for use with emerging model systems.
