ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Phil Trans R Soc: Special theme Issue on Ageing and Sociality
    A special issue on aiging and sociality has been approved by the editorial board of Phil Trans R Soc, editors: Judith Korb, Jürgen Heinze
    (November 2019)
  • Start of transcriptome sequencing phase II
    Transcriptome sequencing of phase II has started (sequencing platform: Illumina HiSeq X Ten)
    (May 2019)
  • Phase II of our SO-LONG Research Unit has officially started!
    (October 2018)
  • Phase II PhD students have been selected.
    PhD students will work on the following projects:
- Comparative analysis of molecular mechanisms of ageing in flies and social insects
- Defying senescence – The causes of death and the costs of living of ant queens
- A comparative approach to the fecundity/longevity trade-off across two origins of eusociality in the bees
- Functional basis of the fecundity /- longevity reversal in the ant 'Temnothorax rugatulus'
- Uncovering the functional basis of the reversal of the fecundity/longevity trade-off in a termite
- Reversal of the fecundity / longevity trade-off across social transitions in ants
- Why and how does sociality change the fecundity / longevity trade-off in termites?
Start of PhD positions are anticipated in October 2018, Kick-off Meeting Phase II: from the 3- 5 September 2018.
