  • Spectroscopic characterisation and modelling of colours generated by nanostructures in vertebrates

    In the context of highly multidisciplinary studies investigating the development of structural colours in vertebrates, we are seeking creative and highly motivated students with strong interests and skills in condense matter physics and numerical simulations of photonic effects. The successful candidates will interact with a  multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists (the latter using state-of-the-art imaging techniques and molecular developmental approaches).

    Contact Prof. Michel C. Milinkovitch (michel [dot] milinkovitch [at] unige.ch) for details.

  • Modelling variation & complexity of animal forms

    In the context of highly multidisciplinary studies investigating the development of skin appendages (project 1) and skin colour patterns (project 2) in vertebrates, we are seeking creative and highly motivated students with strong interests and skills in mathematical modelling and numerical simulations of physical processes (reaction-diffusion, mechanics, …). The successful candidates will interact with a  multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists (the latter using state-of-the-art imaging techniques and molecular developmental approaches).

  • Comparative proteomics in reptiles

    In the context of highly multidisciplinary studies investigating the development of skin colour patterns in the corn snake, we are seeking creative and highly motivated students with strong interest and skills in bioinformatics (basic programming skills are necessary) to work on the analysis of existing comparative proteomics data. The successful candidates will interact with a multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists (the latter using state-of-the-art imaging techniques and molecular developmental approaches).

  • Assembly & annotation of the corn snake genome v3

    In the context of highly multidisciplinary studies investigating the development of skin colour patterns in the corn snake, we are seeking creative and highly motivated students with strong interest and skills in bioinformatics (basic programming skills are necessary) to assist in the assembly and annotation of the version 3 of the corn snake genome; version 2 is the best assembled snake genome to date. The successful candidates will interact with a multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists (the latter using state-of-the-art imaging techniques and molecular developmental approaches).

  • Mapping mutations affecting skin colour traits in the corn snake

    In the context of highly multidisciplinary studies investigating the development of skin colour patterns in the corn snake, we are seeking creative and highly motivated students with strong interest in molecular developmental biology to assist in mapping corn snake colour and colour pattern traits. The successful candidates will interact with a multidisciplinary team of physicists, computer scientists and biologists and will be trained in state-of-the-art imaging techniques and molecular developmental approaches.

Apprentis laborantins et apprentis gardiens d’animaux

L’évolution est un paradigme unificateur dont les implications sont importantes dans pratiquement tous les domaines de la biologie. En effet, tous les caractères étudiés en biologie, des traits morphologiques ou comportementaux aux mécanismes de l’immunité ou de l’expression des gènes, sont les produits de l’évolution biologique.

Les concepts évolutifs ne sont pas seulement pertinents vis-à-vis de la diversité de leurs applications dans de nombreuses disciplines, mais aussi vis-à-vis de l’extraordinaire diversité des êtres vivants: des clones naturels/artificiels aux phylums majeurs constitués d’environ 50 millions d’espèces actuelles, tous les êtres vivants sont connectés via des généalogies et l’arbre phylogénétique de la vie.

Le coeur des activités du laboratoire du Professeur Michel Milinkovitch (Laboratoire d’Evolution Naturelle et Artificielle - LANE) concerne la Génétique Evolutive du Développement (EvoDevo) et la physique de la biologie.
