Developmental biology program, Institute of Biotechnology, University of Helsinki offers Doctoral position in Evolutionary and system Biology in Finland and Spain. The candidate should be biologists and work on simulation of the evolution of the genotype-phenotype map of complex organs, Quantitative study of the patterns of phenotypic variation across ontogeny and phylogeny. The students possess the programming skills or a willingness to acquire them. The job can start as soon as a adequate candidate is found. Applications are to be sent electronically or by post.
Study Subject(s): The scholarship is provided in evolutionary and system biology.
Course Level: This scholarship is for pursuing PhD level.
Scholarship Provider: University of Helsinki
Scholarship can be taken at: Finland and Spain
Eligibility: -They are looking for a student, preferably a biologists, to start a grant for a PhD on the interrelationship between the evolution of gene networks, development and the phenotype:
-Simulation of the evolution of the genotype-phenotype map of complex organs based on development. or/and
-Quantitative study of the patterns of phenotypic variation across ontogeny and phylogeny or/and
-Computational models of pattern formation and morphogenesis in animal development One of the current challenges of evolutionary biology is to understand how genetic variation leads to specific morphological variation (the genotype-phenotype map) and how that process affects the direction of morphological change in evolution. Our group is devoted to address this question by using gene network models.
-Programming skills or a willingness to acquire them is required.
