A three-year post-doctoral position is available to work in the laboratory of Mike Ritchie at the University of St Andrews, on a project which is collaborative with Stephen Goodwin at the University of Oxford. The aim is to adopt a multidisciplinary approach to examine the evolution of the fruitless gene in Drosophila. Studies will include sequencing, population genetics and selection analysis, genetic manipulation and behavioural analysis, and expression analysis. The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic evolutionary or behavioural geneticist with an interest in the genetics of sexual behaviour and/or speciation. A PhD is essential and a work permit will be required for non-European citizens.

The work will be based at the Centre for Biological Diversity at the University of St Andrews, Scotland and will involve visits to collaborators (especially but not only at Oxford) and potential field-work.
