I'm super happy to announce that I have been awarded a NWO-Vidi grant of 800.000 EUR for five years to continue and further develop my research on the evolution of male-female phenotypic differences. To be more specific, I will look at the molecular basis of three sex-specific characteristics that have recently arisen in insects.
For those of you interested in my proposal, you can download it here.
Within approximately two months I will be advertising two PhD projects and one Post-doc position. If you are highly motivated, conceptually strong with a background in molecular biology, biotechnology or related and interested in joining my team, keep an eye on the site or contact me.
Vidi is aimed at experienced researchers who have carried out successful research for a number of years after obtaining their PhDs. Together with Veni and Vici, Vidi is part of the NWO Talent Scheme. Researchers in the NWO Talent Scheme are free to submit their own subject for funding. NWO thus encourages curiosity-driven and innovative research. NWO selects researchers based on the quality of the researcher, the innovative character of the research, the expected scientific impact of the research proposal and the possibilities for knowledge use.
See NWO website for more information.
