Postdoctoral research on social evolution and the evolution of ageing in bumble bees

An experienced postdoctoral researcher is sought to work on a three-year, NERC-funded project in a team supervised by Professors Andrew Bourke and Tracey Chapman.

The wider goal is to determine the effects of social evolution on the evolution of ageing.
