The Department of Zoology invites applications for a four-year PhD position based at the Centre for Palaeogenetics in Stockholm. The project is aimed at investigating speciation, adaptive evolution and extinction in the woolly mammoth. The analyses will use state-of-the-art genomic methods, and will focus on ancient DNA analyses on remains sampled across the last million years (i.e. throughout the woolly mammoth’s entire existence). The PhD project is part of the DeepTime Genomics research programme funded by the Swedish Research Council and an ERC-AdG grant, with the goal to investigate evolutionary processes such as speciation, adaptation and hybridization and how these relate to past environmental change.
