Assistant professorship (with tenure track) for Julián Torres-Dowdall

Julián Torres-Dowdall (Postdoctoral Fellow / Biology) has been appointed as assistant professor (with tenure track) at Notre Dame University, Indiana, USA.

He will start his new position on 1 August in the Department of Biological Sciences with a focus on research and some teaching (one class per semester). “I will continue the research I have been doing in the past years, trying to understand the how’s and why’s of phenotypic diversity”, Julián explains. “Specifically, I will try to understand, what are the selection pressures that affect the visual system of fish and what are the developmental patterns that shape their evolutionary trajectories.”

Julián has been a Fellow of the Zukunftskolleg since August 2013.

We congratulate Julián and wish him all the best!
