PhD in Evolutionary Genomics, Univ of Antwerp, Belgium

The hundreds of closely related but ecologically diverse species of Lake Malawi cichlids provide an exceptional model to study the genomic mechanisms involved in rapid adaptation and diversification. University of Antwerp (Belgium) now has a PhD position available in evolutionary genomics of these fishes and is looking for talented and highly motivated candidates to start in early 2019.
