In this position you are expected to write a dissertation in a stimulating environment using the university's infrastructure. You will experimentally examine the evolutionary ecology of the responses of the freshwater snail Lymnaea stagnalis to changing environmental conditions under climate change. The specific goals are to reveal (1) how selection imposed by heatwaves operates on snail phenotypes and (2) how snails evolve over generations when periodically challenged by high temperature. The project is linked to other work in the research group of aquatic evolutionary ecology (led by Prof. Seppälä) that focuses on the evolutionary adaptation of organisms to environmental change and natural enemies. The position is based at the Research Department for Limnology in Mondsee (Upper Austria).
We are looking forward to receiving your online application.
