The Wielstra lab at Leiden University and Naturalis

LogosIt’s official, on 1 February I will start my ERC Starting Grant project as a tenure track Assistant Professor at the Institute of Biology at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Meanwhile I will be Honorary Researcher at Naturalis Biodiversity Center. In the context of my project I will hire two PhD students and two postdocs. I expect to start advertising positons halfway 2019, so stay tuned!

ERC - Fahrbach arrest
An unfortunate Triturus embryo, experiencing the arrested development that is associated with the balanced lethal system that is shared by all Triturus species, known as ‘chromosome 1 syndrome’. This picture is by Michael Fahrbach and taken from his recent book (Fahrbach & Gerlach (2018) The genus Triturus).



About Ben Wielstra

I am a biologist interested in the interaction among closely species, both ecologically and genetically, during the course of their evolution. In my studies I'm employing the newt genus Triturus.
