If you, or any of your colleagues, are interested in the
following position we are happy to supply further details.
POSTDOCTORAL POSITION Molecular population and quantitative genetics:
identifying genes underlying adaptive responses to climatic stress
Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research
Monash University and La Trobe University
The Centre for Environmental Stress and Adaptation Research (CESAR) is a
prestigious Special Research Centre, funded by the Australian Research
Committee, examining the ways that organisms adapt to environmental
stresses. The climatic adaptation program of CESAR currently requires a
molecular population biologist with experience in microsatellites and
other DNA markers to undertake experiments aimed at isolating genes
involved in climatic stress resistance in natural populations using
Drosophila as a model system. The research is aimed at identifying genes
contributing to differences between temperate and tropical natural
populations using a combination of clinal analysis, candidate gene
identification, QLT mapping in selected lines and microarraying. This is
an excellent opportunity to join a well resourced and world leading
research team that is helping to understand the ways organisms can
evolve to cope with global climatic change.
For further details, please contact Assoc. Prof. Steve McKechnie (61 3
9905 3863; stephen.mckechnie at sci.monash.edu.au) or Prof Ary Hoffmann 61
3 9479 2769; A.Hoffmann at latrobe.edu.au). Expressions of interest or
by the end of February please.
