Prospective Students

I have an opening for a graduate student (preferably PhD) to study evolutionary genomics of birds. A variety of projects are possible, spanning genomics of adaptation, speciation, and conservation genomics. Most projects involve Arctic seabirds, but some involve temperate land birds or tropical seabirds. Several have direct conservation or management applications. A solid theoretical foundation in evolutionary genetics is essential – do not apply if you do not have this. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience with genomics/bioinformatics. Projects involve field work on remote islands, and so prior field experience is an asset, preferably with birds or marine animals. The successful applicant will join a dynamic group of faculty and students studying ecology and evolution at Queen’s University (see http://post.queensu.ca/~birdpop/index.html and https://biology.queensu.ca/) . Please send a resume or curriculum vita e, informal transcript, and contact information for two academic references to Dr. Vicki Friesen ( vlf@queensu.ca ). Deadline for non-Canadian applicants: Jan. 20 2020. Deadline for Canadian applicants: Jan. 31 2020.
