A 2-year postdoc is available using DNA barcoding and next generation sequence (NGS) metabarcoding to study forest ecological networks and forest health. This project has a particular focus on the Oak Processionary Moth Thaumetopoea processionea, an invasive species highly damaging to oak trees and posing...

Two 3-year PDRAs are available to study the 'evolutionary genomics of sexual recombination'- how reproductive mode influences genome content and structure. Applications are now closed -please see Research Openings page for other opportunities.  ...

Applications for this post are now closed. (A 2-year postdoc is available .. this project will be to use modern DNA techniques to investigate agricultural food webs, focussing especially on the interaction of parasitoid wasps with aphids and leaf miners). I will advertise another postdoc (bioinformatics and...
