The Fuller lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is
looking for motivated graduate students interested in the evolution of
fishes. The Fuller lab focuses on two broad topics: (a) speciation in
fish as a function of local adaptation, chromosomal rearrangements, and
community structure and (b) the evolution of color patterns, color vision,
and sexual selection in different habitat types. We use a variety of
approaches (fieldwork, lab experiments, sequencing, quantitative genetics)
in three main study systems: Lucania killifish, darters, and largemouth
bass. We are increasingly moving into genomics. Find out more about what
we do at our website (http://beckyfullerlab.weebly.com/). Students
can apply through either the Program in Ecology,
Evolution and Conservation(http://sib.illinois.edu/peec/)
or the Department of Animal Biology grad program
Applications are due by December 15, 2017 for full consideration for
graduate college fellowships and the deadline for general consideration
is January 1, 2018.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign also offers
state-of-the-art research facilities in imaging, genomics, and
engineering. Urbana-Champaign is a pleasant, affordable, university
town with good music and restaurants. It has its own airport and is
close to three major U.S. cities (Chicago, Indianapolis, St. Louis).
The University of Illinois and the Fuller lab are committed to a diverse
workplace, and prospective students of all races, genders, and sexual
orientations are encouraged to apply.
