Postdoctoral Positions in Molecular Ecology

Two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are available
from 1 October 2001 as part of a European
Commission-funded project entitled "Impact of
aquaculture on the immune response genes of natural
salmonid populations: spatial and temporal genetic
signatures and potential fitness consequences".
Each position will be for three years, with one
position available in Wageningen University
(Wageningen, The Netherlands) and the other in the
Institute of Zoology (London, UK). Other partners
in the project include laboratories in Norway and
the Republic of Ireland.

The project will initially involve characterisation
of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes in
Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo
trutta). Later, MHC variation in both species will
be screened for (i) evidence of an impact of
aquaculture on MHC frequency distributions in natural
populations and (ii) fitness consequences of
individual MHC genotypes under semi-natural
experimental conditions. Experience of molecular
population genetics and/or immunogenetics would be
a pre-requisite for either post.
