Graduate Students: We encourage potential graduate students to get in touch to talk about their interests. Projects in the lab focus broadly on evolutionary biology, usually with an emphasis on phylogenetics, phylogeography, and/or landscape genetics. Much of our work in these areas also has a focus on some more general evolutionary question or conservation biology. The lab mostly focuses on amphibians and reptiles, although we have growing interests centered on several clades that are native to Hawaii, and have hosted lab members that have worked in diverse systems from viruses, to birds, to human languages. If you are interested in joining the lab, please contact Bob to talk about your research interests and graduate school at UH. Generally, we have many more interested applicants than we can possibly accommodate. Strong applicants typically have particular areas of interest that they are interested in working on and developing a project around. We also sometimes have opportunities to join existing projects, and are happy to discuss possibilities with interested applicants.
Postdocs: We have no active postdoctoral searches happening at this time, but are happy to work with postdoctoral candidates to develop proposals for funding. Please reach out if you are interested.
Undergraduate students: Interested and highly motivated undergraduate students are always welcome in the lab to take on independent or collaborative research projects. Please get in touch to discuss your interests.
