Graduate position: GeorgiaSouthernU.PlantEvolution

M.S. Position starting Spring 2019, Plant Evolution and Ecology

The Schenk lab at Georgia Southern University invites applicants for
a Masterขs Degree in plant evolution and ecology, starting Spring
semester, 2019.  Our lab group is interested in how botanical diversity
has been shaped by the interactions among morphological, ecological, and
species diversification.  We apply statistical phylogenetic approaches
that quantify and incorporate molecular, morphological, and ecological
variation to plant systems in order to understand the evolutionary
processes of how and why species diversify.

Tuition and stipend for competitive students that meet all requirements
will be supported by research and teaching assistantships.  For full
consideration, the application deadline is October 1st, 2018.

Interested students should contact Dr. John Schenk
( prior to submitting an application (the
earlier the better).  For more information, visit the Schenk lab website
