New grants

  • Congratulations to Roger Colominas who obtained a postdoctoral Marie Curie fellowship with the IPHC as the host institution. Roger will develop for 2 years a collaborative program with Pierre Bize (University of Aberdeen) and several members of the IPHC (F Criscuolo, S Zahn / DEPE, F Bertile / DSA), as well as with D Heintz from the IBMP – University of Strasbourg. The aim is to evaluate the origin of organic pollutants (POPs) that affect the migratory Alpine swift, and their impacts on life history traits and ageing mechanisms in a Swiss population followed since 20 years. We are really happy to host and work with Roger for the next 2 years, and look forward to start working on the project in next May.

  • Warm congratulations to Martin Quque, who successfully defended his thesis “ Coevolution of sociality and aging in animal society” the 17th November both at the University Libre of Brussels and the 17th December at the University of Strasbourg. The jury composed of Serge Aron and Jean-Christophe de Biseau d’Hauteville (Brussels), Audrey Dussutour (Toulouse), Sylvie Massemin (Strasbourg) recognized the exceptional value of his pluridisciplinary work and granted him with the PhD diploma of both universities. I was delighted to be the co-supervisor of Martin and wish him the best to pursue his promising scientific carrier. Video temporarily available online : https://youtu.be/rtbSDIKM7mQ
  • We would like to happily congratulate two former PhDs of the EPE teams, Sophie Reichert and Antoine Stier that became parents of a beautiful Maximilien the 2nd of January. Certainly a future great evolutionary biologist as he will inherits great genes and perfect parental care environment !
