About the Project

The research group of Dr. Feiner ( is recruiting a researcher in evolutionary genomics. The position is fully-funded by a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The project aims to reveal the genomic basis of adaptive diversification and parallel evolution of a suite of exaggerated colors, morphologies, and behaviors - a syndrome - in wall lizards (genus Podarcis; Yang, Feiner et al., 2021, Nature Communications). The successful applicant will use existing and collect new whole-genome re-sequencing data from a range of wild lizard populations to unravel signatures of parallel evolution in a comparative context. 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.
