PhD position - UCD Dublin, Ireland

EU-nationals are invited to apply for a 3-year PhD scholarship in the 
MarBEE group at the UCD School of Biological & Environmental Science 
in Dublin, working 
with Dr Stefano Mariani in a newly-established group focusing on the 
evolutionary ecology and fisheries genetics of marine animals.
The research is funded by Science Foundation Ireland, under the 
Research Frontieres Programme, and is aimed at understanding the 
population genetic consequences of sex change in marine fish, using 
molecular genetics, meta-analysis and computer modelling. The project 
will entail extensive molecular biology laboratory activity, fieldwork 
periods in the Mediterranean and South Africa, as well as intense 
computer-based work.
Candidates should ideally already possess a Master-level degree in 
empirical population genetics or evolutionary biology, though we 
welcome applicants from other disciplines such as marine biology, 
zoology, ecology, as well as candidates with backgrounds in 
bioinformatics and applied mathematics, with a strong interest in 
biological systems.
Proficiency in molecular laboratory techniques would be very 
advantageous, as would 
some experience of computer modelling. Strong enthusiasm for fieldwork 
in marine coastal habitats and commitment to interdisciplinary 
research are critical.

The appointee will join the Marine Biodiversity, Ecology & Evolution 
Group and the Molecular Genetics Lab, which together comprise 12 PhD 
students, 2 Post-doctoral fellows and three academic staff, working 
on a broad range of topics from comparative genomics, molecular 
phylogenetics and population genetics, to fisheries science, community 
ecology and ecosystem management.

Application procedure:
Please send a 1-page covering letter and a CV no longer than 2 pages, 
plus names and emails of three people who can be contacted for 
references, to: [log in to unmask] 
Closing date for applications: 30th June 2006 (interviews between July 
and August).
Project start date: strictly 1st September 2006.
Scholarship includes payment of university fees plus a monthly stipend 
of 1,300 EUR.

Committed to Equal Opportunities.

Feel free to contact me for any further information about the project 
and related issues.
