Postdoctoral in ecology, theoretical evolutionary biology 291 views

The Department of Zoology consists of five divisions: Ecology, Ethology, Functional Morphology, Population Genetics, and Systematics and Evolution.

At present the department accommodates 45 to50 staff and a similar number of PhD students.

  1. The advertised position will be part of the Division of Ethology.
  2. There is a long-standing tradition for researchers at the Division of Ethology to collaborate with researchers from other fields, such as evolutionary ecology, theoretical evolutionary biology, and the study of cultural evolution.
  3. A postdoctoral research position focused on song learning in birds is available in David Wheatcroft’s research group in the Department of Zoology at Stockholm University.
  4. The aim of this project is to disentangle the roles of early life experience and genetics in song learning.
