PhD/MS Positions in Evolutionary Genomics
Institution: 
Texas A&M University
Position Close date: 
Saturday, December 15, 2018
Description: 

The Casola lab at Texas A&M University seeks applicants interested in pursuing a MS or PhD in evolutionary genomics. We use bioinformatics, comparative genomics and phylogenetics to study molecular evolution and adaptation in forest trees, forest pests, and other organisms. Current research focuses on gene family evolution and gene copy-­‐number variants in conifers and we are starting to work on bark beetle genomics in collaboration with Dr. Heath Blackmon. Enquires about other research avenues within the scope of evolutionary genomics are welcome. Prospective students should email a short description of research interests and a CV to Claudio Casola (ccasola@tamu.edu). Students are encouraged to get in touch as soon as possible and to apply before December 15 in order to be eligible for departmental and college funding opportunities. Check out information for prospective students for graduate degrees in Ecosystem Science and Management (ESSM) or in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB). https://essm.tamu.edu/academics/graduate/prospective/application/ https://eeb.tamu.edu/graduate-­‐program/prospective-­‐students-­‐2/ Dr. Claudio Casola Assistant Professor Department of Ecosystem Science and Management Texas A&M University https://agrilife.org/casolalab/
