Offer Description

The prospective researcher will be tasked with developing and scrutinizing evolutionary epidemiology models to delve into the evolution of communication among bacteriophages. The primary objective of this project is to enhance comprehension of how spatial structure impacts the evolution of communication and the diversification of signals. Various theoretical methodologies will be employed, including adaptive dynamics and simulations of spatial models.

– development and analysis of epidemiological models
– derivation of selection gradients in (i) constant, (ii) time-varying and/or (iii) spatially structured environments
– development of an individual-centred simulation model for monitoring the epidemiology and evolution of bacteriophages

The selected candidate will be a part of the “Ecologie et Epidémiologie Evolutive” team at the Centre d’Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive (CEFE) in Montpellier, working under the guidance of Sylvain Gandon. This project forms an integral part of an enduring collaboration with Edze Westra from the University of Exeter in England. Trips to England are scheduled to facilitate a comparative analysis between the theoretical predictions generated by the models developed and the experiments conducted by the English collaborator.
