The 2017 call for PhD students at the Vienna Graduate School of Population
Genetics (Twitter @PopGenViennaPhD) is now open:

Over the past years, Vienna has developed into one of the leading centres
of population genetics. The *Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics*
has been founded to provide a training opportunity for PhD students to
build on this excellent on site expertise.

We invite applications from *highly motivated and outstanding students*
with a background in one of the following disciplines: bioinformatics,
statistics, evolutionary genetics, functional genetics, theoretical and
experimental population genetics. Students from related disciplines, such
as physics or mathematics are also welcome to apply.

Topics include:

• Evolution of gene expression

• Understanding thermal adaptation

• The impact of new transposable element insertions on adaptation to a new

• *Wolbachia* infection dynamics in evolving *Drosophila* populations

• The adaptive value of diversity produced by recurrent whole genome

• Epigenetic variation in *Arabidopsis*

• Genetic footprints of adaptive introgression

• New methods for modelling and analysis of data from experimental evolution

• Maximum likelihood inference of population genetic parameters using
genome-wide data from nearly neutral sites

Only complete applications (application form, CV, motivation letter,
university certificates, indication of the two preferred topics *in a
single pdf*) received by *January 08, 2017* will be considered. Two letters
of recommendation need to be sent directly by the referees.

All information about the about available topics, the training program and
the application procedure can be found at www.popgen-vienna.at
