Social Evolution PhD Course

This PhD course will introduce the key concepts in social evolution and the use of social insects as a model system to understand the evolution of sociality. The following topics will be covered and taught by invited scientists who are experts in their fields:

Evolution of sociality
Genetics of sociality
Conflict and cooperation
Mutualisms and parasitism

Students attending the course will develop a firm platform on which to build their own knowledge and ideas. It will train students to critically address key literature, through questioning, debating and presenting research papers. Importantly, the course will provide students the opportunity to build connections with their peers and the invited scientists. Therefore, we highly encourage early-stage PhD students to apply.

The course will be held at the recently established research institute IST Austria (Institute of Science and Technology Austria), just outside the capital city of Vienna.
