Positions

PhD position

I have a position for a PhD student available (65%, E13 — standard PhD funding in Biology in Germany).
The PhD project will explore potential conflict and collaboration between transposons and their Drosophila hosts. To this end the PhD student will model population dynamics of transposable elements both within a genome and across species. This project is also highly interdisciplinary as these theoretical results will be compared to the experimental findings from the collaborative project by Prof. Wilfert (University of Ulm).
The position is funded for three years as part of the project FlyInnovation, a collaborative project together with the empirical group of Prof. Wilfert, working within the DFG-funded Priority Programme GEvol (http://g-evol.com/).
