We are looking for a student with a Master degree in chemical ecology or natural product chemistry to work on this project on the History of an evolutionary convergence: evolution of chemical defenses within mimetic butterflies communities. The student will have to perform chemical analyses on biological material using various innovative analytical techniques. Together with those lab skills, the student should display a high motivation for fieldwork in tropical areas. The PhD thesis will start in October 2016. Application files should contain: a CV, a cover letter, Master score sheets, and two recommendation letters. Complete application files must be sent to Dr. Violaine Llaurens and Dr. Bastien Nay before March 30th. Selected candidates will then be interviewed by a selection committee in May. The PhD will start on October 1st, 2016.
