Position as PhD Research fellow available at the Department of Biosciences.

The fellowship is for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at the Department) provided that the successful candidate has good knowledge of one of the Scandinavian languages (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish). Otherwise, the fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work. Starting date will be no later than 01.10.2017. Note that no one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the University of Oslo.

Project description:

We are searching for a highly motivated person with interest in plant genomics and plant development.

The PhD fellow will be connected to a collaborative project between CEES - Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis and the Section for Genetics and Evolutionary Biology .The project is associated with an ongoing project entitled "Evolutionary and functional importance of simple repeats in the genome" which is funded by the Research council of Norway through the FRIPRO program as a selected frontier research project. As such, the candidate will be working in one of the leading research groups in Norway headed by professor Kjetill S. Jakobsen. The project focuses on the functional modulation of regulatory mechanisms affecting the phenotype by variations in simple tri-nucleotide repeats (TNRs) residing inside (coding) and in the vicinity (or in introns) of genes. Specifically, we will test the hypothesis that hypervariable coding/regulatory repeats are promoting the ability of a species or population to adapt to a changing environment. To address this we will use Arabidopsis and Atlantic cod as model systems. The project is cross-disciplinary and will utilize genomic, bioinformatics, statistics and experimental approaches. The appointed PhD candidate will work in a team consisting of 4 professors and 4 doctoral and post.doctoral candidates.

The larger project consists of three interconnected work packages (WPs) and the successful candidate will work on the WP entitled "Addressing the functionality of repeat variation in Arabidopsis and cod" led by Associate professor Melinka Butenko and Professor Anne Brysting. The project has international collaborators and research visits to collaborating partners will be encouraged.

The PhD candidate will focus on functionally testing the adaptive advantage of varying TNRs in th
