Tim and Rudy land jobs; two funded positions available in the lab

Congratulations to Tim who receive a postdoc offer with Mark Urban, and Rudy, who landed a lectureship position at RHUL.

Meanwhile, independent from these two leaving the lab at the end of the year, there are currently two funded postdoc positions available in the lab, to work on the genomics of speciation. For the job advert click HERE.

Things going on

Emma Curran, who is doing a fourth year project in the lab, was recently awarded a highly competitive NERC studenship. She will commence a PhD with Nicola Nadeau on the evolution of colouration in Heliconius butterflies.

Victor ran an intensive hands-on workshop on genomic analysis for Anamaria, Kei, and Moritz. Anamaria is assembling her own genomic data from mussels, conducting variant calling, etc. Great progress.

Holiday season is over

The holiday season is over and field season is approaching. Lot’s going on. The paper in Ecology Letters is official published, including a Timema featured on the cover (nice photo Aaron). Anamaria received an ESF travel grant to link the mussel work on wild populations to aquaculture. Nice work Anamaria. Kei arrived from Japan and is settling in quickly. Everyone is busy writing papers…
