Two PhD positions on Salmon genome evolution, Norway

Successful candidates to either of these positions will be associated with the large 4-year TRANSPOSE project recently funded by the FRIPRO Toppforsk program in the Research Council of Norway (https://cigene.no/category/projects/). TRANSPOSE is addressing fundamental knowledge gaps concerning genome evolution following a whole genome duplication, using salmonid fishes as a model system.

PhD 1, Transposable elements as agents of chromosome evolution in salmonids

PhD 2, Salmonid evolutionary and population genomics
