There are no postdoc positions currently in the lab. However, I am excited to discuss sponsoring a fellowship application with motivated scientists. I particularly encourage graduate students to contact me 1-2 years before their anticipated graduation, so we may discuss project ideas and submit fellowship applications.
Fall 2020 (Please note that the deadline has passed for Fall 2019.)
Students interested in either MS or PhD level work in evolutionary genomics should email me to discuss opportunities ahead of a formal application to the University of Memphis Graduate School and Biology Department. Please describe your research interests and experiences and attach a CV.
Please note that I do not support conferral of MS degrees in the process of a PhD. An MS requires a thesis, a PhD a dissertation; an MS in the process of the PhD with me would be a 7+ year process with expectations of publishing a thesis and dissertation.
I have several openings for undergraduate volunteers. Students must commit to 6-9 hours per week in lab. Initial lab work will consist of data entry and computer analyses, with future opportunities to train in the wet lab (i.e. DNA extraction, PCR, and building genomic libraries). Interested students should email me and detail their science/biology interests and list any relevant courses or experiences.
I am specifically looking for a junior or senior interested in population genetics and simulation modeling. The student must have taken and passed General Genetics.
