Ph.D. student positions in evolutionary biology at the University of

Two positions as graduate students in evolutionary biology are available

immediately in a new lab in evolutionary biology in the Department of
Biology at the University of Konstanz. Diverse subdisciplines are
represented and include molecular evolution/phylogenetics,
developmental biology, molecular ecology, conservation genetics, and the
evolution of developmental mechanisms. Our current research interests
include the evolution of gene families (particularly developmental
control genes such as Hox genes), comparative developmental evolution
involving the zebrafish model and cichlid fishes, molecular evolution
and molecular phylogenies particularly of diverse groups of fishes,
evolution of social systems, and population level questions based on
microsatellite analyses.

        The University of Konstanz and the Department of Biology are
among the most highly rated in Germany and provide a lively, and
academically outstanding research environment. The charming town of
Konstanz is located on Lake Constance one hour from Zuerich and is close
to both Switzerland and France.

        Student stipends are paid based on 1/2 BAT II salary of
approximately (depending on age and marital status) 34.000 DM  19.000
