We have a funded project assistant position open. The selected applicant is expected to work on evolutionary understanding of aging and immunity. Duration of the project is initially one year, with a possibility of extension. For more information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Fond farewell to Pavan who was one of my first students. He did some nice experiments on co-infection but now wants a career in music (rapper...whooh). We wish him good luck..)
Congratulations to Basabi, Srijan and Manasven for winning a poster award at the 2019 Understanding Behaviour conference at IISER Kolkata! The poster described how cannibalism can reduce resource competition in red flour beetle females who otherwise get engaged in a chemical war against each other under food stress.

Our work on experimental evolution of memory-like response in insect immunity covered here (starts at 15:22). To find the published work, click the following link
I am likely to consider 1 PhD student, starting from January 2019, with primary interest in experimental evolution and genetics of immunity, using insect models. Application portal is open now Last date of application is 15th December, 2018
We welcome Saubhik Sarkar (BHU) in the lab. He is primarily interested in understanding the evolutionary impact of ageing on immunes responses, using experimental evolution and genetics.
Looks like quite an interesting summer ahead – I will be spending nearly two months (July-August) at École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne EPFL to develop a reasonable understanding of Drosophila genetics to answer some fundamental questions on immunity and evolution :). Many thanks to Prof. Bruno Lemaitre for generously hosting me in his lab and supporting …
