A post doc position is available at the Department of Evolutionary
Biology, University of Copenhagen.
January 2003 the Carlsberg Foundation granted 5 years of support for
the project Molecular Diversity and Evolution. The grant includes 10
post doc years, 2 PhD stipends and running costs.
The project has two major components: 1. Evolution of processes
responsible for gene product diversity. Focus will initially be upon
alternative splicing in evolution and 2. Evolution of regulatory
networks based on non-coding RNA. The overall perspective for these
studies is the molecular evolution of organism complexity. The
intention of this research is to better understand the relationship
between phenotypic evolutionary change and the evolution of basic
molecular processes. The project will focus upon molecular
experimentation in collaboration with on-site bioinformaticians.
With this post doc position we specifically wish to focus on
differential splicing and its regulation. The candidate will be
responsible for the experimental work in this connection and
supervision of PhD and Msc students. The project is internationally
well connected and is in a strong bioinformatic and molecular
The Post doc is potentially for 3 years with a yearly renewal. There is
a three month probation.
The position is open until filled. Send applications to: Professor
