The State Museum of Natural History Stuttgart (SMNS) is one of the largest natural history museums in Germany dedicated to studying and documenting the evolution of organisms and ecosystems. One focus of research within the Department of Zoology is on the evolution of tarsiers, tiny Southeast Asian primates. We seek an experienced and highly motivated researcher (m/f/d) in the area of primatology. The successful candidate will be expected to focus on links between population dynamics and the phylogeny of Sulawesi tarsiers (Tarsius spp.) and to test several hypotheses related to the taxonomy and demography of selected species. The projects will draw upon more than 20 years of tarsier research by our group (PI Dr. Stefan Merker) and a large collection of DNA samples curated at the SMNS. D
