The successful candidate will work on population genomics of Indo-Pacific birds aspart of a larger ongoing Villum Foundation funded project that aims toelucidate the underlying mechanisms of how species form, disperse, adapt andinteract and how this leads to the species distributions we see today.
Work inthe group includes phylogenetics, phylogeography and systematics and we have astrong field component (currently we work mostly in Papua New Guinea), with theaim of collecting additional data (molecular and ecological) as well as fittingsatellite transmitters to monitor annual movement of sedentary bird species.The candidate is mainly expected to work on the generation of genomic data anddownstream analyses but is also encouraged to be part of the field efforts.

We seek applicants who have intimate knowledge of and interest in population genomics and phylogeographyirrespective of organisms. This research builds on a large collection of freshtissue material from two elevational gradients on Indonesian islands (Buru andSeram) and two elevational gradients in Papua New Guinea and aim to shed lighton movement along the gradients and across the barriers and how populationsdifferentiate and adapt over time.
