>> Two PhD scholarships in invertebrate morphology: ³Evolution and development
>> of central organ systems in marine meiofauna²
>> Two 3-year PhD positions are available at the Marine Biological Section,
>> Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen. The positions will be
>> jointly supervised by Katrine Worsaae, University of Copenhagen and Andreas
>> Hejnol, Uni Sars Centre, Norway. Deadline for applications is June 11, 2012.
>> The scholarships will address the origin of central body designs through
>> detailed studies of, microscopic, complex animals of the lesser-studied
>> spiralian lineages. Hereby we seek answers to central questions such as: Was
>> the last common spiralian ancestor relatively large and complex as annelids
>> and mollusks? Or was it microscopic consisting of low number of cells only?
>> How complex and regionalized is the brain of microscopic animals?
>> The PhD projects are expected to provide new scientific insight into the
>> detailed structure, development, and evolution of central characters in
>> selected spiralian meiofaunal taxa. Transcriptomes of these taxa are either
>> in progress or will be generated during the project. The projects will
>> combine the disciplines of advanced microscopy and immunochemistry
>> (histology, TEM, CLSM, 3D reconstructions) with studies of gene expression
>> patterns. Body designs and organ systems of interest could be e.g., the
>> brain, sensory structures, seriality, cell numbers and size, dwarfism,
>> alimentary canal. For further information on the project contact Assoc. Prof.
>> Katrine Worsaae at kworsaae from bio.ku.dk. **Please do not post your application
>> to this address**.
