UON 2022 Postdoctoral Research fellowship in Evolutionary Biology

UON 2022 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is more than just a fellowship but  an opportunity to learn most and also work with ERC Starting Grant project Dissecting the paradox of stasis in evolutionary biology (ROCKS- PARADOX) awarded to Kjetil Lysne Voje.

This project a big and it is highly collaborative and includes both the local and International fellows.

Fellowship Details

  • Host country: Norway
  • Host Company: University of Oslo
  • Reward: Partial Funding, NOK 483 700 ‘ 560 700 per year
  • Eligible: International and Local students are eligible
  • Application: Now Open
  • Deadline: August 10, 2022

The Voje lab seeks to understand the processes that govern phenotypic evolution along the timescale continuum. Our research uses a wide variety of taxa and we combine empirical work and methods development to obtain a deeper understanding of the connection between microevolutionary processes and the associated evolutionary change that may occur on longer timescales.

The position will be affiliated with The Evolution and Paleobiology Group (EPA) at the Natural History Museum in Oslo.

EPA is a highly active research group consisting of PhD students, post docs, and permanent staff and provides an excellent scientific and social environment for the candidate.

The paradox of stasis refers to the contrasting observations of phenotypic evolution on short and long timescales; rapid evolution is commonly observed across a few generations in living populations while the fossil record often indicates that species remain more or less unchanged for millions of years.

The overarching goal of the ROCKS-PARADOX project is to provide a deeper understanding of evolutionary trait dynamics on timescales in between micro- and macroevolution.

We should also have it in mind that this fellowship is only partially funded.
