The International Max Planck Research School for Organismal Biology is a joint cooperation between the Max Planck Institute for Ornithologyand the Department of Biology at the University of Konstanz. The research group Evolutionary Physiology<http://www.orn.mpg.de/2606/Research_Group_Hau>headed by Prof. Michaela Hau at the Max Planck Institute for Ornithology in Seewiesen invites applications for a
PhD position (f/m) on Heritability and microevolution of hormonal traits<http://www.orn.mpg.de/3758082/hau-2017>.
Our goal is to unravel evolutionary patterns in flexible physiological traits such as circulating hormone concentrations. Unlike stable traits like morphology, the evolution of highly flexible traits like hormones is still hardly understood. Since hormones regulate a wide range of fitness-relevant traits, it is important to understand their scope for plastic or micro-evolutionary changes to understand the potential of populations to adapt to the rapid ongoing changes in environmental conditions world-wide. We are currently focusing on the ‘stress’ hormone corticosterone, assessing circulating concentrations as well as responses to environmental and social conditions in wild populations of great tits (Parus major). We are assembling a growing data base of hormone concentrations of individuals taken at multiple times of year, together with measures of fitness and genetic pedigree. We routinely collect correlative data on hormone variation relative to environmental and social variation and have embarked on experimental approaches to establish hormonal reaction norms.
Your profile: We are looking for an enthusiastic PhD candidate to continue and expand the field and data base work to quantify the plasticity and heritability of corticosterone traits. We welcome the use of experimental approaches such as reaction norms to quantify hormonal responses of individuals. We are also able to conduct experiments in captivity. Experience in work with birds, hormones or data bases are advantageous but not required. A driver’s licence is required for field work. Applicants should hold a MSc or equivalent degree in biology or a related discipline at the point of enrollment.
Our offer:The PhD project is fully funded for at least 3 years. The salary will be paid according to the collective agreement for civil service employees (TVöD). The program offers a dedicated teaching program, high quality research experience, and outstanding research facilities in an inspiring research and living environment. The working language is English. Each PhD student receives individual supervision and mentoring and is guided in her/his research work by a PhD advisory committee.
Application: Please apply exclusively on our online application portal<http://www.orn.mpg.de/2383/Application> on no later than Jan 15, 2017. Interviews with the applicants are scheduled for Mid‐March. Candidates accepted into the program may start latest October 2017.
The Max Planck Society and the University of Konstanz are equal opportunity employers and are committed to increasing the participation of women in its research activities and to employing more individuals with disabilities and especially encourages them to apply.
Interested? For further information and discussion of ideas please contact Prof. Michaela Hau [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>. More information at www.orn.mpg.de/IMPRS<http://www.orn.mpg.de/IMPRS>and www.facebook.com/OrganismalBiology<http://www.facebook.com/OrganismalBiology>.
