Over the past years, Vienna has developed into one of the leading centres of population genetics. The Vienna Graduate School of Population Genetics has been founded to provide a training opportunity for PhD students that builds on this outstanding on site expertise.

We invite applications from highly motivated and outstanding students with a background in one of the following disciplines: bioinformatics, statistics, evolutionary genetics, functional genetics, theoretical and experimental population genetics. Students from related disciplines, such as physics or mathematics are also welcome to apply.

Available topics include:
New algorithm and models to analyze population genetic massive parallel sequence data
The footprint of adaptive gene introgression after secondary contact
Probabilistic models for the population genetics of molecular evolution
The genetics of two closely related species of Aquilegia
Evolution of gene expression in Drosophila
Association mapping in outbred Drosophila populations
Measuring interspecific gene flow by massively parallel sequencing
Genetic basis of local adaptation
Admixture mapping with Bayesian probabilistic models for genome wide population genetic data
Mathematical models of spatially varying selection in subdivided populations
Functionally Significant Genetic Variation in Lifespan in Natural Populations
Statistical methods for detecting selective sweeps using genome-wide data
Population genetic estimators from NGS data

Applications need to be received by 13.02.2011 and include CV, motivation letter, university certificates and an indication of the two preferred topics in a single pdf. Two letters of recommendation need to be sent directly by the referees.
