Graduate position: UMontana.SpeciationAdaptation

The Good lab at the University of Montana in Missoula is looking to recruit
highly motivated Ph.D. students interested in evolutionary genomics.

Current major research projects in the lab are focused on (1) the genetic
basis of reproductive isolation and (2) adaptation to novel environments in
mammals. Our speciation research utilizes genomic analysis of hybrid rodent
model systems to understand the evolution of hybrid inviability and
sterility, with an emphasis on sex chromosome evolution and gene
expression. We are particularly interested in recruiting students
interested in the studying the evolution of genomic imprinting and the
disruption of embryonic growth pathways in hybrid mice and hamsters. Current
research on adaptation is focused on climate change and the evolution of
seasonal coat color camouflage in snowshoe hares and other mammals. Our
adaptation research is part of the newly established UNVEIL research and
training network and include the possibility of dedicated fellowship
support (
