Researcher in theoretical evolutionary biology

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

A position as a (postdoctoral) researcher in theoretical evolutionary biology is available in the research groups of Dr. Claus Rueffler and Prof. Göran Arnqvist at the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study and the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University, Sweden.

The Department of Ecology and Genetics is an international environment with staff and students from all over the world. Our research spans from evolutionary ecology and genetics to studies of ecosystems. For more information, see www.ieg.uu.se.

Project description: We are broadly interested is the evolution and maintenance of adaptive diversity at different levels of biological organization. Potential projects include (but are not limited to):

(i) Many organisms occupy different ecological niches during their life cycle. For example, juveniles and adult individuals of the same species use different resources and migrating birds repeatedly forage in different geographic regions. In this project, the postdoctoral fellow will study how such complex life cycles affect the potential for ecological diversification.

(ii) Competition, for example over shared resources, is a major source of negative frequency-dependent selection that facilitates coexistence of different phenotypes. Furthermore, many mathematical models have shown that such diversity can emerge by gradual evolution at so-called evolutionary branching points. Cooperation by division of labor is a potential alternative mechanism favoring the emergence of diversity and this idea is much less explored from a theoretical perspective. In this project, the postdoctoral fellow will explore the conditions allowing for the emergence of diversity driven by division of labor in a variety of models.

(iii) Frequency dependent selection across many loci simultaneously is a biologically plausible scenario, but one which may be ineffectual in terms of the maintenance of adaptive diversity largely due to recombination. In this project, using polygenic models, we ask how the evolution of recombination rates may interact with frequency dependent selection to shape the architecture of adaptive genetic variation.

Duties: Independent development of new theory regarding the project in collaboration with other researchers at the department. Compilation and presentation of the results in the form of scientific publications. Detailed research plans will be developed in collaboration with the successful candidate, and tailored to match her/his individual interests and strengths.

Qualifications required: The successful candidate must have a PhD in theoretical biology or mathematics/theoretical physics/computer science. In the latter case, a documented interest in ecology and evolutionary biology is a requirement. Proficiency in English is an additional requirement. The PhD should have been completed within three years of the application deadline. Applicants that received their PhD earlier than this date will be considered if special circumstances exist (such as prolonged periods of illness, parental leave, military service, union duties and others of similar character). 

Qualifications desired: We seek candidates with a documented expertise in mathematical modelling in evolutionary biology. Experience with Mathematica and another programming language suitable for individual-based simulations is highly desirable. Experience of tackling problems relating to the evolution and maintenance of adaptive diversity is a merit. Because the holder of this position will collaborate and interact closely with several group members, we will put emphasis on both independence and ability to collaborate.

Uppsala University aims for gender balance and diversity in all activities in order to achieve a higher quality at all levels of the organization. We therefore welcome applicants of any gender and with different birth background, functionality and life experience.

Position: The position is a full time temporary position for one year, with a very likely extension to two years.

Salary: Individual salary.

Starting date: 2020-01-01 or as agreed.

Application:The application should include (1) a 1-3 page cover letter that clearly states the candidate’s research interests, qualification, relevant experience, future research ambitions and specifying the date they will be available to start the position (max. 2 A4 pages), (2) CV including a list of publications, (3) copy of the doctoral degree, (4) contact information to three reference persons (e-mail address and phone number) and (5) any unpublished work that you would like to present in support of your application. The application should be written in English.

For further information about the position please contact: Dr. Claus Rüffler, claus.rueffler@ebc.uu.se or Prof. Göran Arnqvist, goran.arnqvist@ebc.uu.se.

Project description:
A 4-year PhD student position is now available for highly motivated individuals with interest in integrative can­cer re­search, in the laboratory of Dr Sven Nelander (nelanderlab.org). The goal of the project is to develop a new therapeu­tic strategy against the brain cancer glioblastoma, based on direct in vivo reprogramming of the tumor cells. Working in a team of both theoretical and experimental researchers, you will use two new and powerful experi­mental methods to analyze drug effects in patient-derived brain tumor cells. First, a new profiling method, termed drug-SEQ, is adapted to globally investigate the effect of targeted therapies on multiple cellular pathways. Second, innovative gene editing and single cell approaches to investigate how cells change over time in the presence and ab­sence of targeted interventions. Together, these approaches will be used to clarify how cells from a specific patient individual can be reprogrammed to reduce or reverse tumor growth in vivo. In the project, you will collaborate with top level experts in neuro-oncology, computational biology, technology and mathematics. The project is co-super­vised by three highly skilled experts in RNA sequencing/single cell technology, in vivo modeling of glioblastoma, and radiotherapy (Dr Milena Doroszko, Dr Ramy Elgendy, Dr Marika Nes­tor), and tightly linked to a dynamic inter­national center in brain tumor and systems biology at IGP and the Rudbeck labor­atory. The successful candidate will devote most of the time towards his/her research level education. Other service activi­ties within the department, e.g. education and administrative work can be included within the framework of the employ­ment (maximum 20%). The position will be extended with the time devoted to teaching to allow four years of full time graduate studies.

Qualifications:
The applicant should have MSc degree in a relevant area. For this particular position, we strongly encourage candi­dates with well documented experimental experience in one or several of the area(s) of cancer biology, stem cell biology, RNA se­quencing,  phar­macology and genomics.

PhD student in evolutionary ecology

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

A PhD student position in evolutionary ecology is available at the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Programme of Plant Ecology and Evolution, Evolutionary Biology Centre, Uppsala University.

The Department of Ecology and Genetics is an international environment with staff and students from all over the world. Our research spans from evolutionary ecology and genetics to studies of ecosystems. For more information, see www.ieg.uu.se.

The Evolutionary Biology Centre (http://www.ebc.uu.se/?languageId=1) is one of the world’s leading research institutions in evolutionary biology and offers an inspiring international atmosphere. There are ample opportunities for interaction with PhD-students, Postdocs and researchers working on related topics.

Project description: Mutualisms, interaction between two species that benefit both, are present nearly everywhere, and are essential for most ecosystems. Despite their importance we still have a rather poor understanding of how mutualisms persist. The PhD student will examine how mutualists interact with enemies external to the mutualism, and how this varies across closely related species. The model system is the mutualism between fig trees (Ficus) and their pollinating fig wasps; an attractive system because it allows experimental manipulations, fitness can be quantified in the field, and there are many species to use for comparative studies.
