Genetics of niche specialisation

Vacant niche space provides opportunity for evolutionary innovation. Using a genetically and phenotypically tractable bacterial model this project will explore the eco-evolutionary dynamics of niche specialisation focussing on the arms race between organism and environment including the molecular and physical bases.  Interested candidates should consult our website (http://micropop.evolbio.mpg.de), read about our approach to doing science (http://micropop.evolbio.mpg.de/opportunities), and be conversant with some of our publications.  If enthusiasm burns, then contact Paul Rainey (rainey@evolbio.mpg.de) for further discussion.
