Functiebeschrijving

We offer a PhD position (1.0 FTE) to undertake research on female mate choice and sexual selection in livebearing fish within the Experimental Zoology group at the Animal Science Department of Wageningen University, the Netherlands. This position is financed by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

The aim of this project is to study differences in sexual selection among natural populations of the livebearing fish Poeciliopsis retropinna in Costa Rica. The project will quantify the relationships between local environmental conditions, reproductive strategy (placentation, superfetation) and multiple paternity (polyandry). This will then be linked to female mate choice by looking at pre-copulatory selection (based on male phenotype and behaviour), post-copulatory selection (sperm competition) and post-fertilization selection (genetic compatibility, asymmetric provisioning). This project will use an integrated approach to study sexual selection by combining mate choice experiments, genetic analyses, comparative analyses of male genitalia and an evaluation of sperm locomotion. The PhD student will use established lab populations housed at the Aquatic Research Facilities of Wageningen University. The project is supervised by Dr. Bart Pollux and Prof. Johan van Leeuwen at Wageningen University.

Functie-eisen

For this interdisciplinary project we look for an enthusiastic, result-driven person with a MSc degree in biology, with a specialization in Molecular Ecology and a strong interest in evolutionary questions. The candidate should have excellent research and communication skills, be creative and independent (yet at the same time a team player) and be proficient in English (both oral and written).

Arbeidsvoorwaarden

As a PhD candidate, you will be offered a fulltime position (38 hours) for 4 years, after which you should have completed your PhD thesis and individual training plan. The salary for a PhD candidate starts at € 2.125,- gross per month in the first year and extends to a maximum of € 2.717,- gross per month in the fourth year (in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities).

Dienstverband: Temporary, Onbekend

Wageningen UR

Wageningen University and Research Centre delivers a substantial contribution to the quality of life. That's our focus - each and every day. Within our domain, healthy food and living environment, we search for answers to issues affecting society - such as sustainable food production, climate change and alternative energy. Of course, we don't do this alone. Every day, 6,500 people work on 'the quality of life', turning ideas into reality, on a global scale. Do you want to be one of these people? We give you the space you need. For further information about working at Wageningen UR, see www.jobsat.wur.nl.
This project will be carried out in the Experimental Zoology Group within the Department of Animal Sciences.
