Ph.D. positions in "Evolutionary and Developmental Biology" at the
University of Konstanz, Germany

Two 3-year University funded Ph.D. positions in evolutionary and 
developmental biology are available immediately in the labs of Prof. 
Axel Meyer and Dr. Gerrit Begemann in the Department of Biology 
at the University of Konstanz.  

Students with interests in molecular evolution, developmental 
biology and/or the evolution of developmental mechanisms are 
encouraged to apply. Our labs focus on the evolutionary 
conservation of genes and developmental processes in zebrafish 
and cichlids ("Evo-Devo"). Experience in developmental and/or 
molecular biology would be beneficial, but is not essential. New 
and "state-of-the-art" facilities are available for genomics, 
sequencing, and to study fish development at the molecular and 
genetic level.  

Appointments are for 3 years with a salary according to German 
BAT2a/2 salary scale (about DM 3,000 or $ 1,400/month). These 
positions will remain open until filled, and applications should be 
submitted at the earliest convenience.  

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.
