Posztdoktori hangyafilogéniában


Post doctoral position in population genetics at Laboratoire d’Ethologie Expérimentale et Comparée (LEEC-CNRS UMR 7153), France (30 minutes from the centre of Paris)

We are looking urgently for a postdoctoral researcher on the University funded project “Molecular phylogenetics and evolution of social structure traits in the Ectatomma ants (Hymenoptera: Formicidae: Ectatomminae)”. The overall aim of this project is to understand the role of microgyny as alternative reproductive tactics in ants. The post-doctorant is expected to work with Dr C. Poteaux-Leonard and Dr J-P Lachaud to develop microsatellite makers on E. ruidum to analyse the fine scale population genetic structure
of Mexican populations of this species (sampling has been done).

This project belongs to the research axis “Organisation and phylogeny in ants societies” of the Team 1 of the Lab : Ethology of social Hymenoptera. For details of the LEEC’s research, please see:

The position is full-time and is for a fixed term of 12 months, starting as soon as January 2009. The salary is about 2 100 net/month (including social benefits) plus an annual research bonus.

Interested individuals should have a doctorate in biology (population genetics). Full applications (including a cover letter outlining research interests, complete CV, publication list and contact details for three referees) should be sent to Dr. Chantal Poteaux-Leonard (poteaux(at) Consideration of applications will begin immediately until December, 14th.
