Two research technician positions in Sheffield (UK) are now advertised
to work on the evolution or reproductive barriers in the coastal snail,
Littorina saxatilis.

The posts involve a mix of fieldwork, snail measurement (including
behavioural) and genetics aimed at understanding the genetic basis of
local adaptation and the potential for it to progress towards speciation
as well as the genetics of a reproductive mode difference between
nominal species. The technicians will work within a large group funded
by recently-awarded NERC and ERC grants.

For details, go to then choose ‘Current
vacancies’, choose ‘Technical’ and then ‘Search’. The two positions are
advertised separately, each for two years. In fact, there is the
possibility to extend beyond two years and we will make the appointments
at the same time. They are advertised as full time, but could be
part-time (and then for longer).

Applications must be made online. For informal enquiries, please email me.
