Graduate student position to study general and fundamental issues in evolution at the University of New Brunswick, Canada

A graduate student position is available in the laboratory of Aurora Nedelcu, in the Department of Biology at the University of New Brunswick Canada.

Research in the laboratory is directed towards understanding general, fundamental issues in evolution – such as the evolution of multicellularity, development, cell differentiation, sex, programmed cell death, altruism.

Our research is rooted in the framework of transitions in individuality and evolution of complexity (at a conceptual level), and of cellular responses to stress (at a more mechanistic level).

The experimental model-system currently being used is the green algal group, Volvocales (see our Volvocales Information Project; http://www.unbf.ca/vip).

Highly motivated students with interests in either theoretical or experimental approaches, and previous research experience are encouraged to apply.

Interested applicants should e-mail a CV, summary of research experience and interests, unofficial transcripts, and contact information for at least two referees to anedelcu@unb.ca

Applicants should meet the minimum requirements for acceptance in the Biology Department Graduate Program.
