Postdoctoral Scholarship in Evolutionary Genetics of Pathogen Resistance and Sustainable BioControl in Insects

University of Gothenburg
Full Time
2 weeks ago


A 2 year postdoctoral scholarship is available to study evolution in crop pests under variable versus stable selection pressures. This work will involve evolutionary and quantitative genetic assessments of variation for pathogen resistance in crop pests, a laboratory evolution experiment to explore directional and correlational evolution under consistent versus fluctuating conditions, and the chance to participate in an international and trans-disciplinary partnership involving evolutionary biologists, host-pathogen scientists, agronomists, social scientists, industry and not-for-profit organisations promoting sustainable agricultural practice.
