If you are interested in joining our lab, please take a look through this document describing lab expectations and procedures.
Postdocs We are currently recruiting new postdocs through the Modelscapes consortium. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions or want more information! To apply, please submit a cover letter, CV, links to 1-2 recent papers, and contact information for 3 references. You can submit your applications here.
Graduate students We are currently recruiting 1-2 PhD students to join our group in fall 2023. Successful applicants will work with laboratory microcosms, computational models, and genomic data to test the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms behind the formation of stable range limits. Students will work closely with each other and other lab members on full group projects but are also encouraged to develop independent projects based on their own interests within the field of spatial eco-evolutionary dynamics.
The positions will be fully funded for 5 years through a combination of research and teaching assistantships and will be based out of the University of Wyoming's main campus in Laramie, WY. Applicants need a bachelor's degree in biology, ecology, evolution, or a related field. Additional preferred qualifications include quantitative and/or bioinformatic skills, familiarity with a scientific computing language (R, Matlab, Python, etc.), and previous research experience.
To apply, please email me at email@example.com with your CV, transcripts (unofficial are fine), a statement of interest, and contact information for 2-3 professional references.
Undergraduate students Our microcosm experiments with the red flour beetle are quite labor intensive and we often have openings for paid positions assisting with laboratory work. If you are interested, please contact me to inquire if there are any current openings. If you are interested in developing your skills with quantitative models, we can also discuss options for developing an independent research project as an honors thesis or through one of the University of Wyoming's programs for undergraduate research (e.g. the Wyoming Research Scholars Program).
