  • PhD student in Evolutionary biology
    PhD position at the University of South Bohemia (Czech Republic) available from July 2019 Adaptive radiation of cichlid fish in rivers: Evolutionary genomics of replicated diversification in Neotropical pike cichlids For more details see: http://zoo.prf.jcu.cz/index.php/theses-item/adaptive-radiation-of-cichlid-fish/?lang=en Project background: Adaptive radiation is an evolutionary process in which organisms rapidly diversify into a multitude of new forms as a response to new ecological opportunities. Classic examples include Darwin’s finches, the cichlid fishes in East African lakes, Anolis lizards, Hawaiian honeycreepers or Hawaiian silverswords. The cichlid fish radiations stand out by their spectacular trophic diversity and richness of sympatric species. Current work suggests that ecological opportunity, intrinsic ecological versatility and genomic flexibility and rapidly evolving behavioural mate choice are some of the factors that facilitated these spectacular fish radiations. However, the intrinsic and environmental factors are still far from being completely understood. In particular, adaptive radiations are often too rapid for the emergence of new relevant mutations between successive speciation events and are thus more likely to utilise standing genetic variation. Hybridization between species can instantaneously boost genetic diversity and create novel phenotypes, and thus facilitate speciation and adaptive radiation. On the other hand, the question whether interspecific hybridization is important as a mechanism that generates biological diversity is a matter of some controversy due to the argument that reduced fitness would typically render hybrids an evolutionary dead end. The model system: Whether hybridization is the cause rather than the consequence of the rapid radiation cannot be studied without an appropriate study system. Our research group has recently discovered and introduced an outstanding evolutionary model of replicated diversification that includes two independent riverine lineages of a South American cichlid genus, Crenicichla, inhabiting adjacent river basins (of the La Plata River) with similar geomorphology. Both clades show an extremely wide range of morphologies and coloration patterns tied closely with trophic ecology, in which the corresponding (and strikingly similar) ecomorphs from different basins have evolved independently. Further, we have recently demonstrated, based on morphological tests of similarities, ancestral states and rates of evolution that the replicated ecomorphs arose via parallel processes of phenotypic and trophic diversification. These two clades are restricted to their respective river and members of each group occur in sympatry such that their ecomorphological diversity arose in situ (i.e., species flocks) reflecting parallel patterns of evolution well known from African lake-dwelling cichlids. Goal of the project: We believe that the above-described exceptional model of two in-parallel diversifying species flocks from the La Plata basin with strikingly similar corresponding ecomorphs is the best known system to study adaptive radiations in Neotropical riverine cichlids. The aim of this project is thus to bring new resolution into the study of microevolutionary processes of diversification within these confined geographical regions based on whole-genome sequencing and RAD-seq genotyping. Phylogenomic and morphological analyses will be used to better understand the biological and environmental factors underlying rapid speciation with special focus on the role of hybridization. To achieve full employment of the WGS/RAD data we will also sequence and assemble a reference genome of an appropriate congeneric species. Research team: The student will work in a small team supervised by: Lubomír Piálek, Department of zoology, University of South Bohemia – principal investigator Oldřich Říčan, Department of zoology, University of South Bohemia – co-supervisor The project will be conducted in close collaboration with Jorge Casciotta and Adriana Almirón (National University of La Plata, Argentina), Edward Burress (University of California, USA), and Milan Malinsky (University of Basel, Switzerland). Time and place: The PhD position is available for three years, starting in July 2019 (starting date negotiable) at the Dept. of Zoology, Faculty of Science, University of South Bohemia, Czech Republic. University of South Bohemia (USB) is a state university, founded in 1991. It is located in the regional centre of South Bohemia, the town of České Budějovice (Budweis; population ca. 100,000), about 150 km south of Prague, 25 km north of Český Krumlov or 200 km northwest of Vienna, Austria. The town was established in the thirteenth century as a “King’s town” by the Czech King Přemysl Otakar II on the Vltava (Moldau) River. USB is a research university focusing mainly on natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. A significant aspect of the scientific research activities is close cooperation with the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. The university comprises eight faculties, which are located in the historical centre of the town and on the university campus on its western edge. The campus also includes student residences, a mensa, a Rector’s office and the buildings of the Biology Centre of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. Applicant’s desired qualification: Master’s degree in biological sciences Understanding of the basic principles of population genetics and molecular evolution Ability to work independently Experience with computational analysis of biological data Strong motivation to develop further skills in the above fields Friendly relationship to fishes and particularly cichlids J Scholarship: The PhD candidate’s net monthly income starts at 20.500 CZK (ca. 800 EUR) and will increase with experience and achievements during the study. Note that living expenses in the Czech Republic are substantially lower than in Western European countries and that less than a half of this sum will pretty much cover your living costs, especially while staying at the campus. How to apply: If interested, send a motivation letter, CV and abstract of your Master (Diploma) thesis in a single PDF file to: lubomir.pialek@prf.jcu.cz until May 31, 2019. Sooner is better - please note that the call may be closed earlier. ]

  • Research Fellow in Connected Autonomous Vehicle Simulation for Safety Assurance
      Research Fellow in Connected Autonomous Vehicle Simulation for Safety Assurance Fixed term for 24 months £33,199 to £39,609 UWE Bristol is an ambitious university. Together, our people are working hard to advance knowledge, inspire people and transform futures. We are looking for people with the skills and ambition to help us achieve those aims. About us: Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) is the most comprehensive academic centre for multi-disciplinary robotics research in the UK. It is a collaborative partnership between the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and the University of Bristol, and home to a vibrant community of over 250 academics, researchers and industry practitioners. Together, they are world leaders in current thinking on service robotics, intelligent autonomous systems and bio-engineering. The state-of-the-art facilities covers an area of over 3,500 sq. metres (over 37,000 sq. feet) and BRL is an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence in Robotics. The primary mission of BRL is to understand the science, engineering and social role of robotics and embedded intelligence. In particular, the key challenges surrounding adaptive robotics, namely: dealing with people and their unpredictability, unstructured and uncertain environments, and equipping robots for flexible roles. BRL is a unique collaboration that harnesses the collective strengths of its partners to spearhead Britain's efforts to be a world leader in modern advanced robotics. This Innovate UK funded Connected Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) project is motivated by the opportunity to gain significant socioeconomic benefit in the Public Service Vehicle sector by automation of a bus service. The prime objective of the project, therefore, is to evaluate a commercially operational extended pilot service involving buses that will be either partially or fully autonomously (with supervision) over a 10-mile route, taking passengers across the Forth Bridge near Edinburgh. About you: Bristol Robotics Laboratory researchers will make two main, safety related, contributions to the project. First, we will build on expertise developed in collaboration with researchers at the University of Bristol during previous Connected Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) projects, to develop a simulation of the route using state-of-the-art vehicle simulator software and hardware. Using this simulation, we can design scenarios that stretch the vehicle's sensor and/or control systems and, where it is important to do so, test human participants' reactions to selected scenarios. Clearly these situations can be much more easily varied in a known way so as to achieve more critical settings than those which can safely be tested in the real world. Second, we will carry out risk assessments that build towards safety cases for real-world experiments to be conducted using the bus, with critical findings from simulation guiding the nature and detail of the test environments and the experiments themselves. Thus, we will verify and validate the safety of the bus control system, as well as helping to evaluate its acceptability overall. Although there will be significant interaction with those at BRL and others working on the CAV-Forth project, this position is focused predominantly on the first of the contributions outlined above, i.e., on developing and using the simulation platform to investigate and discover the, so called, 'corner cases' (the most safety-critical situations) that need to be tested in the real-world, and to carry out simulator-based tests with participants. Thus, we will guide the focus for, and maximise the benefits from, the expensive and risky real-world testing to be carried out prior to implementing the 10-mile pilot driving route. To achieve this, you will utilise the results of recent research, carried out in Bristol, on simulation-based verification and validation techniques for autonomous vehicles. You will focus, in collaboration with the CAV-Forth partners, on a variety of autonomy functions and use case scenarios. This post is not available on a job share basis, due to the tight interlinked nature of the project's goals and inter-partner schedule. In addition to progressive pay rates, UWE Bristol offers a wide range of staff benefits including: - a generous holiday allowance of 35 Days - up to 12.5 bank holiday/closure days per year in addition - flexible working - excellent defined benefit pension schemes - option to participate in the cycle to work scheme - family friendly policies - onsite nursery at our Frenchay Campus. This post is based in the Bristol Robotics Laboratory that is situated at our lively Frenchay campus where we have invested in the latest facilities and resources to give our students access to everything they need to succeed - with GBP 300m having been spent recently on new state-of-the-art learning spaces and accommodation to enhance our offer even further. Frenchay campus is within close proximity to excellent motorway links and within walking distance of two train stations, making UWE Frenchay Campus the ideal place to work for those wishing to commute to Bristol.
