Deadline to apply: 25 September 2012
The Helmholtz-Centre of Ocean Research (GEOMAR) is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic candidate who is expected to pursue his / her own research lines within the field of Marine Genomics (eukaryotes). There are also excellent opportunities to collaborate with ongoing and planned experimental projects that broadly address the evolutionary responses of populations to global change. Research projects in our group currently include:
- immune system evolution in invertebrates and teleosts
- adaptation and speciation genetics in sea turtles and teleost fishes
- experimental host-parasite co-evolution with bacteria, fish and viruses
- genomic and transcriptomic adaptation to ocean acidification in fish and phytoplankton
A major goal in our group is to seek the genetic basis of adaptations /coevolutionary processes using a combination of selection experiments and field observations across contrasting habitats. One mid-term goal is to make predictions on the adaptability of species /populations based on their genomic architecture and standing genetic variation.
