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 aim of the project is to investigate costs of reproduction and the fecundity-longevity trade-off in the bumble bee Bombus terrestris and the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster. The wider goal is to determine the effects of social evolution on the evolution of ageing.
