About the Project

The research group of Dr. Feiner ( is recruiting a researcher in evolutionary developmental biology. The position is fully-funded by a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The project aims to unravel the developmental basis of parallel evolution of a suite of exaggerated colors, morphologies, and behaviors - a syndrome – in wall lizards (genus Podarcis). The successful applicant will focus on studies of neural crest cell biology in a comparative context. The project includes a number of different methodologies, including scRNA-seq and other omics approaches. A central aim is to apply gene editing (CRISPR-Cas9) to functionally validate candidate genes. The exact project plan will be adjusted based on the background and interest of the applicant. The starting date is negotiable and funding is available for three years.

About the Department

The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Science. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.
