Professor Juan Gabriel Martínez, from the Department of Zoology at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in this university. Applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information in the participant guide: http://sl.ugr.es/097k).

The Research Group of “Biology and Conservation of Mediterranean Vertebrates” (http://ofertaimasd.ugr.es/rnm/grupos-de-investigacion/rnm-254-biologia-y... ) belongs to the Department of Zoology at the University of Granada. The research of this group focuses on different aspects of the ecology, behaviour and conservation of vertebrates in the Mediterranean area, although some other research topics, such as molecular ecology and population dynamics are also covered.

Professor Juan Gabriel Martinez is working to the biology of a high mountain butterfly, Parnassius apollo, in Sierra Nevada, South of Spain. We have already characterized its populations in terms of population size and genetic diversity and have detected some degree of population structure. We now aim to better understand population dynamics by looking at the individual level. In particular we want to gain a deeper insight into some processes likely to affect population trajectories and diversity, such as mate choice and differential reproductive success of males and females. Using polymorphic microsatellite markers in parentage analyses we will estimate variance in reproductive success of both sexes and how this is influenced by factors such as the sex ratio in the population.
