      Country: United States
      Last Date to Apply: 12/01/2019
      Open Until Filled: Yes

    A unique graduate research opportunity is available to study avian evolution in the wild using some of the most advanced techniques in developmental biology and genomics. The project investigates ontogeny of rapid microevolutionary changes that have accompanied dramatic range expansion in house finches. The graduate position offers a rare combination of fieldwork in some of the most biologically interesting and spectacular study sites across the North and Southwest with mastering advanced laboratory and analytical techniques at the University of Arizona, currently encompassing cell lineage tracing, gene expression and transcription factor networks and associated transformations of developing tissues. It is a rare opportunity to master some of the most sophisticated laboratory techniques while also working in some of the most spectacular and wildest natural settings. Graduate school applications are accepted until December 1, 2019 through the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology of the University of Arizona. Address questions to the project PI – Dr Alex Badyaev (abadyaev@arizona.edu, web).
