Description: To adapt to desert, mammals developed different phenotypes to cope with the lack of water or food paucity associated to such environment. For example, some rodents have evolved to increase the water retention capacities of their kidneys, others show a decrease of the general metabolism activity helping to cope with food shortage and high temperature often associated to such environment. Despite the different studies at the physiologic level, little is known about the molecular and evolutionary mechanism of adaptation to desert environment. We are undertaking a large population genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic analysis to identify the genes and regulatory networks underpinning these traits in multiple rodent species.
To be considered for this post you will hold a PhD in Evolutionary Biology, Population Genomic or Computational biology. You already have experience with genomic data analysis (genomics/Transcriptomics/epigenomics) in population genomics, molecular evolution or gene expression regulation.
