PhD Student: Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics 484 views

The Department of Plant Biotechnology and Bioinformatics at Ghent University is inviting applications for a PhD position.

About the project:

The project has three components:

  1. Creating neoautopolyploid duckweed lineages with different genetic backgrounds
  2. Testing the immediate effects of WGD on the survival, fitness and the phenotype (and its plasticity) of duckweed in different environments, and testing whether different environments favour different ploidy levels
  3. Evolutionary genomics of polyploid Spirodela polyrhiza, we will follow genomic stabilisation, transcriptional dynamics and proteomic changes after WGD.

Requirements:

  • The applicant should have a master’s degree in Biology, Bio-Technology, Bio-Engeneering (or equivalent) or will have obtained this degree by the start of appointment: January 2020.
  • A strong interest in evolutionary biology is required and experience in both empirical research and bioinformatics are preferred.
  • The student needs to be dedicated to carrying out long-term multidisciplinary research which involves regular maintenance of duckweed cultures, some molecular work, as well as evolutionary genomic analyses.
  • Basic knowledge of programming/scripting and statistics is required.
  • Fluent English and good communication skills, oral and in writing, are essential.

Duration: a 4 year, ERC funded, PhD studentship in the Van de Peer Lab
