GRADUATE STUDENT POSITIONS IN GREEN ALGAL EVOLUTION
Teaching/research assistantships are available for MSc or PhD students in the Department of Biological Sciences at The University of Alabama under the supervision of Dr. Juan Lopez-Bautista beginning Fall 2011. Our Laboratory is focused on the systematics, biodiversity and evolution of algae. The University of Alabama is located in Tuscaloosa, AL (50 min from Birmingham).
This opportunity involves participation in an NSF-funded AToL project GRAToL: Assembling the Green Algal Tree of Life. This investigation is aiming to study the systematics and phylogenetic relationships of green algae, in particular the class Ulvophyceae, using a multi-gene dataset. Students interested in green algal evolution, systematics and phylogenetic analyses are particularly encouraged to apply.
Interested students are encouraged to contact Juan Lopez-Bautista (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
