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 (, read about our approach to doing science (, and be conversant with some of our publications.  If enthusiasm burns, then contact Paul Rainey ( for further discussion.
