As part of a recent NERC Highlights grant award, Kevin Parsons, Neil Metcalfe, Jan Lindstrom, and Shaun Killen are currently seeking to hire a post-doc. The project is entitled, “The predictability and limits of evolution in response to increased temperature: insights from a natural 'experiment'”, and aims to examine the genetic, epigenetic, morphological, developmental and physiological changes that occur in response to warming environments, using freshwater populations of stickleback fish from varying geothermal habitats in Iceland as a study system. The ideal candidate will have conceptual and practical knowledge in evolutionary biology, physiological ecology and/or developmental biology.
