Published in May this year to mark 10 years of the EVOLTREE network, "Evolution of Trees and Forest Communities" summarises the research group's infrastructures, resources and initiatives and features ten research papers that were published in the framework of EVOLTREE.
EVOLution of TREEs as drivers of terrestrial biodiversity.
A network of excellence linking four major disciplines, Ecology, Genetics, Genomics and Evolution, to address global issues that European forests are currently facing, such as environmental changes and the erosion of biodiversity.
The 2015-2018 consortium is made up of 32 research groups in 23 European countries, as well as Israel.
Two PhD positions in the improvement of the pathogen response of poplar by modification of receptor kinases
Department of Plant Cell Biology at the Schwann-Schleiden Research Center for Molecular Cell Biology, University of Göttingen
We are looking for two highly motivated new team members interested in elucidating the role of LysM receptor like kinases in the resistance op poplar against the poplar rust Melampsora larici-populina.
The closing date for applications is 21 August 2016
Post-Doc Position in Quantitative and Population Genomics
INRA Orléans, France
We are looking for a highly motivated, creative and enthusiastic young scientist to join our team “prediction and management of genome and population diversity in forest trees”.
