The research will take place in the Center of Excellence in Experimental and computational developmental biology of the Biotechnology Institute of the University of Helsinki, Finland.

Requirements:

  • PhD in either evolutionary biology, developmental biology or, preferably, in evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo);
