Modelling variation & complexity in animal colour traits

In the context of a multidisciplinary study combining mathematical modelling, computer science, and evolutionary developmental genetics, we are seeking 2 outstanding, highly motivated, and creative computer scientists with strong interests / skills in computer graphics and numerical simulation approaches. Each position is for 3 years and can start anytime but preferably before February 2011

A new project, funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and the University of Geneva, integrates the expertise of three research groups for an improved understanding of the mechanisms generating variation, complexity, and convergences at colour traits in animals.

One successful candidate will primarily work at the University of Bern whereas the other will primarily work at the University of Geneva (but the two individuals will interact extensively). The successful candidates will develop and deploy advanced tools for comprehensive acquisition, modelling, and mathematical analysis of high-resolution colour textures and 3D geometries from a large number of animal individuals in the laboratory as well as in the field.
