Postdoctoral Associate post based at University of Cambridge

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Research Associate to work with Professor Frank Jiggins in the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge and Dr Ben Longdon, University of Exeter, on a Leverhulme Trust funded research project 'A new laboratory model to test the principles of host-parasite coevolution'. The successful candidate will be based in the Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge, and will conduct fundamental research aimed at understanding the evolutionary dynamics of coevolution.

Taking advantage of our detailed knowledge of the genes controlling the susceptibility of Drosophila to viral infection, the post holder will investigate the processes underpinning coevolution by tracking allele frequencies within laboratory populations. The post requires creative candidates who are enthusiastic about taking experimental approaches to understand the processes governing coevolution in nature. Successful candidates will have an advanced understanding of evolutionary processes and concepts. It will be advantageous to have previously worked on coevolution.
