  • 6 PhD/Postdoc positions: U of Groningen, Netherlands
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 13 - March 25, 2014

      6 PhD/postdoc positions available on eco-evolutionary assembly of ecological communities.

      At the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Studies of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, there are 6 vacancies for PhD students and/or postdocs, as part of the research program "On the origin of species assemblages" which is funded by a VICI grant awarded to Prof. Rampal S. Etienne.

      CONTENT

      This program aims to develop a fully stochastic, dynamical, eco-evolutionary and data-friendly theory of community assembly, and testing and informing this theory with model-oriented experiments and field studies of both macro-organisms and micro-organisms. The theory will contain models of speciation, extinction, immigration, and evolutionary change that vary in spatial, phylogenetic and biotic complexity, and will be designed for confrontation with data. The models include but are not limited to birth-death models, individual- based simulation models, and models of adaptive dynamics. New modelling directions are encouraged.

      The evolutionary experiments will involve the mite Tetranychus urticae (in collaboration with Dries Bonte at the University of Ghent, Belgium) and the bacterium Escherichia coli (in collaboration with Joana Falcao Salles at the University of Groningen) which are ideal model organisms due to their short generation times. The experiments will provide insight into how diversity affects diversification, a great unknown in current macro-evolutionary theory.

      The theory will be applied to naturally occurring microlandsnails in South-East Asia (in collaboration with Menno Schilthuizen at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands), and micro-organisms in geothermal pools in New Zealand (in collaboration with Gavin Lear at the University of Auckland, New Zealand).

      As a general outline, for the theoretical part, both potential PhD students and postdocs can apply. The mite and microsnail projects will each require a PhD student, the E. coli and geothermal pool projects together will require a postdoc. However, candidates who are willing and able to handle a combination of theoretical and empirical work are particularly encouraged to apply.

      PROFILE OF CANDIDATE

      The candidates should
      - hold an MSc degree in ecology or evolutionary biology, or an MSc degree in mathematics or physics with experience/interest in applications to biology
      - be willing to work in a multidisciplinary team
      - have good communication skills in English (speaking and writing)

      INFORMATION AND APPLICATION

      More information can be requested from Prof. Rampal Etienne (r.s.etienne@rug.nl). Applications can be sent to the same address and should contain:
      - Motivation letter (max. one page)
      - Up-to-date CV
      - List of study grades
      - Names of two references
      Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.

  • 2 PhD positions in Theoretical Ecology-U of Amsterdam
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 11 - March 11, 2014

      Two vacancies for PhD positions are available in the research group of Prof. Andre de Roos, the Theoretical Ecology group within the Institute for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED, see ibed.uva.nl) at the University of Amsterdam. Theoretical Ecology is an expanding research group, currently comprising 2 professors, 3 assistant professors, 1 post-doc, and 4 PhD candidates, and hosts two ERC Advanced Grants. It has active research programs in structured population modeling, resource-consumer interactions, epidemiology, demography, and evolutionary and eco-evolutionary theory.

      The PhD positions are part of the research program Eco-evolutionary dynamics of community self-organization through ontogenetic asymmetry, which is funded by an ERC Advanced Grant to Prof. dr. André de Roos. This research program focuses on the ecology and evolution of the complex life cycles that characterize the majority of animal species. In species with such life cycles juveniles and adults (or smaller and larger individuals) often differ in their energetic efficiency, as they feed on different resources. Recent research has shown that this so-called "ontogenetic asymmetry in energetics" has counterintuitive consequences for population dynamics and may lead to self-organization in species interactions, but it is not yet known to what extent it also shapes the interaction networks in ecological communities in general. The main questions addressed in the ERC research project therefore are (1) under what conditions does ontogenetic asymmetry in energetics evolve as a driver of self-organization in ecological communities and (2) to what extent has ontogenetic asymmetry in energetics contributed to the diversity of life and the evolution of complex life cycles.

      Both PhD projects will be embedded in the larger context of the research program sketched above. The precise topic of each of the two PhD projects is yet to be determined and may also depend on the experience and interests of the PhD candidates themselves, as long as the topic fits within the larger research theme of the program. The research involves the formulation of population dynamic models that account for population size distributions and complex life cycles. Models with be analyzed using both analytical as well as numerical approaches, such as numerical bifurcation programs and simulations, to develop theory about the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of population with complex life cycles. Model predictions will be confronted with experimental and empirical data from the literature or available through collaborations with other research groups.

      Application deadline 31 March 2014.

  • PhD Studentship: University of Nottingham, UK
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 8 - February 18, 2014

      A PhD Studentship (3.5 years) is available in Mathematical Biology, in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham

      Title: New effective descriptions of deformable, adaptively remodelling biological tissue

      Biological tissue is distinguished from materials described historically by continuum mechanical theory by its ability to grow and remodel adaptively, regulated by complex processes occurring within autonomous discrete cells.

      This project will seek to develop improved mathematical representations of a wide class of deformable, adaptively remodelling materials, accommodating the influence both of microscale (cell-scale) and mesoscale (tissue structure and mechanics) effects on corresponding macroscale (tissue-scale) formulations, exploiting a combination of multiscale asymptotic homogenisation techniques, mathematical modelling and detailed numerical simulation.

      This project will be based at the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology (CMMB), within the School of Mathematical Sciences. This internationally-renowned research group has a strong track record in the development of novel cutting-edge mathematical models and techniques that are grounded in, and relevant to, biological applications. Collaboration with experimental experts at the University of Nottingham and elsewhere will inform and validate the models developed.

      We require an enthusiastic graduate with a 1st class degree in Mathematics (in exceptional circumstances a 2(i) class degree can be considered), preferably of the MMath/MSc level. Experience in asymptotic and numerical methods, or in mathematical biology more generally, would be a distinct advantage.

      Informal enquiries should be addressed to Dr Reuben O'Dea, email: Reuben.Odea@nottingham.ac.uk. Formal applications should be made via http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/pgstudy/apply/apply-online.aspx.

      Funding Notes:

  • PhD Studentship: University of Dundee, UK
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 7 - February 11, 2014

      A PhD Studentship (3.5 years) is available in Mathematical Biology, in the Division of Mathematics at University of Dundee.

      Title: Modelling and investigation of collective cell movement

      Project description:
      A large number of fundamental processes in development and various diseases (e.g., cancer growth and invasion, morphogenesis) are the result of coordinated cell movement. Despite recent advances in identifying the communication mechanisms involved in individual cell movement, there are still many open questions regarding the mechanisms involved in collective cell movement (where cells stay connected as they move). This project will use mathematical modeling and analysis to formulate hypotheses regarding the interplay between multiple cell-cell communication mechanisms and its effects on collective cell movement.

      The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Dr. R. Eftimie. The candidate will also interact directly with a Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematics and researchers in the College of Life Sciences.

      To be considered for this PhD Studentship, the candidate will have to have at least a 2:1 honours degree in Mathematics (or in a cognate discipline, i.e., Physics, Engineering). Because of EPSRC restrictions, the full Studentship will be available only to UK residents. Interested EU students, please contact Dr. Eftimie.

      A PhD studentship (3.5 years) is available in the Division of Mathematics at the University of Dundee.

      Multiscale modelling and analysis of plant cell signalling processes and biomechanics

      The modelling and analysis of the various interrelated processes involved in plant development and growth is a fascinating and challenging area of research in Mathematical Biology.

      Plant cells and tissues have a very interesting and complex microstructure that facilitates control of their biomechanics and anisotropic growth, in addition highly developed regulatory signalling mechanisms allow immobile plants to adapt to changing environmental conditions.

      The main focus of the research project will be on the development of novel multiscale mathematical models of the interactions between intra-cellular signalling processes and biomechanical properties of plant cell walls and tissues. The project will also involve numerical simulations and multiscale analysis of the developed models. The analysis of mathematical models will enable us to identify the influence of microscopic molecular interactions on the macroscopic behaviour of plant cell walls and tissues. The theoretical research will be conducted in collaboration with experimental biologists at the James Hutton Institute, Dundee, UK and the University of Heidelberg, Germany.

      The successful candidate will have a background in mathematics and an interest in the interface between mathematics and biology. Together with a Post-Doctoral Fellow and experimental partners, the successful candidate will form a team investigating the fascinating biochemical and mechanical proper- ties of plant cells and tissues. Because of EPSRC restrictions, the full studentships will be available only to UK residents. (For complete information on students eligibility, please consult the EPSRC website http://www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/Pages/eligibility.aspx).

  • 6 PhD/Postdoc positions: U of Groningen, Netherlands
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 13 - March 25, 2014

      6 PhD/postdoc positions available on eco-evolutionary assembly of ecological communities.

      At the Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Studies of the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, there are 6 vacancies for PhD students and/or postdocs, as part of the research program "On the origin of species assemblages" which is funded by a VICI grant awarded to Prof. Rampal S. Etienne.

      CONTENT

      This program aims to develop a fully stochastic, dynamical, eco-evolutionary and data-friendly theory of community assembly, and testing and informing this theory with model-oriented experiments and field studies of both macro-organisms and micro-organisms. The theory will contain models of speciation, extinction, immigration, and evolutionary change that vary in spatial, phylogenetic and biotic complexity, and will be designed for confrontation with data. The models include but are not limited to birth-death models, individual- based simulation models, and models of adaptive dynamics. New modelling directions are encouraged.

      The evolutionary experiments will involve the mite Tetranychus urticae (in collaboration with Dries Bonte at the University of Ghent, Belgium) and the bacterium Escherichia coli (in collaboration with Joana Falcao Salles at the University of Groningen) which are ideal model organisms due to their short generation times. The experiments will provide insight into how diversity affects diversification, a great unknown in current macro-evolutionary theory.

      The theory will be applied to naturally occurring microlandsnails in South-East Asia (in collaboration with Menno Schilthuizen at Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, The Netherlands), and micro-organisms in geothermal pools in New Zealand (in collaboration with Gavin Lear at the University of Auckland, New Zealand).

      As a general outline, for the theoretical part, both potential PhD students and postdocs can apply. The mite and microsnail projects will each require a PhD student, the E. coli and geothermal pool projects together will require a postdoc. However, candidates who are willing and able to handle a combination of theoretical and empirical work are particularly encouraged to apply.

      PROFILE OF CANDIDATE

      The candidates should
      - hold an MSc degree in ecology or evolutionary biology, or an MSc degree in mathematics or physics with experience/interest in applications to biology
      - be willing to work in a multidisciplinary team
      - have good communication skills in English (speaking and writing)

      INFORMATION AND APPLICATION

      More information can be requested from Prof. Rampal Etienne (r.s.etienne@rug.nl). Applications can be sent to the same address and should contain:
      - Motivation letter (max. one page)
      - Up-to-date CV
      - List of study grades
      - Names of two references
      Incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled.

  • Research Fellow: University of Melbourne, Australia
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 8 - February 18, 2014

      The Australian Research Council has funded a research project on how spatial patterns arise in biological and physical processes. Understanding how local individual-based functions, such as movement and interactions between individuals, give rise to global spatial distributions and patterns in populations of individuals is generating much interest. Probabilistic agent-based models provide information about the movement of individuals, whereas continuum models provide information about the global properties, such as spread of populations. This project will provide tools for determining the connection between the two types of models, thereby linking the behaviour on microscopic and macroscopic scales. For details and to submit an application by 28 March 2014, go to www.jobs.unimelb.edu.au and quote position number 0032804.

  • Postdoc position - INRA Rennes, France
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 5 - January 28, 2014

      Postdoc position in theoretical population genetics and evolution of partially asexual species at INRA Rennes, France

      Deadline for applications: 2014-01-31

      Supervision: Solenn Stoeckel (INRA Rennes) and Sophie Arnaud-Haond (Ifremer Sete)

      Context: Many important species reproduce both sexually and asexually. While there is an extensive theoretical framework for the population genetics of both either sexual or asexual species, our ability to understand the evolution of partial asexuals is still impeded by a lack of suitable models to analyse and predict changes in their genetic diversity. Using a variety of stochastic modelling techniques (Markov chains, SDEs, individual-based numeric simulations) and statistic approaches (Bayesian, machine learning), our interdisciplinary workgroup (evolutionary biology, mathematics, computing) aims to provide the necessary tools for closing this gap. The task of the postdoc will be to extend the model to spatially structured populations, synthesizing the consequences of partial asexuality on their genetic composition and providing new "null models" for the analysis of field data. The position is part of a French national research project (ANR Clonix) offering opportunities to co-author collaborative applied and theoretical papers. Competences: The candidate should have a strong background in at least one of the domains of theoretical population genetics, scientific programming (Unix Batch scripts, C and Python) and/or mathematics (linear algebra, Markov chains, SDEs). He/she should be able to work in an interdisciplinary team and to collaborate closely with scientists from different backgrounds.

      Conditions: The position is funded for 16 or 17 months according to the classical French government contract (1750-1880 EUR net salary depending on experience, with extra benefits including health insurance, child care, public transport and lunch contributions). Though near the sea and situated in a very touristic region, life in French Brittany is relatively cheap on a European scale. Rennes is a student city (out of 300.000 inhabitants, ~60.000 are university students) with a lot of facilities for newcomers.

      Application: Candidates should submit their application by email with the subject [ANR Clonix Postdoc Application]. It should be written in English and consist of a CV with a full list of publications, talks and posters, a motivation letter (2 pages max.) highlighting their competences relevant to the proposed position and max. one optional page linking this postdoc position to their long-term research perspectives. Interviews will be held per videoconference.

      A 2-year post-doc position is available to work on the "Modeling the spatio-temporal dynamics of Dengue in Cambodia accounting for viral evolution" at the Department of Ecology and Evolution, Paris (ENS) under the supervision of Professor Bernard Cazelles.

      Today, Dengue fever represents a major challenge in public health and threatens especially South-East Asia. The objective of DENFRE European Project (http://www.denfree.eu/) is to improve our knowledge on the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of Dengue in this area to design innovative public health measures. This project is strongly interdisciplinary and is composed by epidemiologists, biologists, computer scientists, statisticians and mathematicians.

      As a part of this research project, the successful candidate will have to develop cutting-edge models that would be used synergistically with empirical data on disease incidence, viral genetic and antigenic variation. These mathematical and/or computational models of dengue propagation will be supported by epidemiological and antigenic data from DENFREE consortium, in close relationship with the Pasteur Institute in Cambodia. In particularly, the successful candidate will have to account for heterogeneous and highly interdependent data through a Bayesian framework. This approach is sufficiently flexible to design phylodynamic models that account for non-linear disease dynamics, molecular selection and population structure. This modeling will also take the advantage of the SSM plateform (https://github.com/standard-analytics/ssm) in close collaboration with its founders.

  • Postdoc position - University of Oldenburg, Germany
    • SMB Digest Vol 14, Issue 4 - January 21, 2014

      Postdoc position (Theoretical Ecology): Functional consequences of spatial biodiversity patterns.

      Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Ocean (ICBM) University of Oldenburg, Germany

      within the project "Biodiversity - Ecosystem Functioning across marine and terrestrial ecosystems (BEFmate)"

      BEFmate is a joint project by the University of Oldenburg and the Georg-August University of Gottingen. It addresses biodiversity- ecosystem function relationships across marine and terrestrial ecosystems employing meta-analyses, syntheses, ecological modeling and empirical experiments. A particular focus of the subproject B2 is the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function in spatially structured ecosystems. To explore the functional consequences of spatial biodiversity patterns, we will establish mathematical models that describe the meta-community dynamics, biodiversity, ecosystem function, and species turnover in networks of interconnected habitat patches. Using these models we will study the hypothesis whether increasing spatial complexity alters the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem function and if self-organized spatial heterogeneity can be a significant driver of biodiversity. The models will further be used to closely accompany the planed field experiments on artificial islands in BEFmate.

      The applicant will work in the mathematical modelling group of Prof. Dr. Bernd Blasius.

      Applicants must have an above-average doctoral or PhD degree in theoretical ecology, applied mathematics, physics, or related discipline. Applicants experienced in biodiversity research or one of the relevant disciplines (theoretical biology, mathematical modeling, statistical physics) are particularly encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a strong interest to work in an interdisciplinary team and must have good knowledge of English.
