Congratulations Dr Watt

Rebekah successfully passed her PhD viva on Monday – well done! The big, bad world of non-academic science beckons, at least for now, so good luck and very best wishes for the future, from all the group. Nice one.

Post-doc opportunity to be announced soon

We have just heard that our proposal “The genetics and genomics of adaptive sex ratio behaviour” will be funded by NERC. We are still waiting for the final financial details but will be adverstising for a post-doctoral research associate shortly. The project will explore the genetic basis of sex ratio variation in the wasp Nasonia vitripennis, using traditonal genetic as well as next-generation sequencing techniques. More information to follow shortly.

Rebekah’s thesis submitted

The other important bit of news to catch up on whilst the website has been updated is that Rebekah has submitted her PhD thesis. Nice one.
