GraduatePosition: Purdue University_Rapid Evolution

A PhD position is available in lab of Mark Christie at Purdue University. A position is available for highly-motivated candidates interested in rapid genetic adaptation, population genetics, and conservation in general. For more information about our research please visit:

Potential projects include:  1. Examining the rapid genetic adaptation of introduced fishes into the Great Lakes, 2. Identifying the genetic and evolutionary consequences of domestication, captive breeding, and supplementation of wild populations, and 3. Using existing and novel approaches to determine patterns of dispersal, gene flow, and local adaptation within a metapopulation context. These are the main research themes in the Christie laboratory, and research often focuses on fishes, but graduate students are free to explore independent lines of inquiry in any system. Previous research experience with molecular techniques, computational work, statistics, bioinformatics, and assisting with the design and implementation of experiments will be highly regarded.

If you are interested in joining the lab, please contact me directly at or with a CV and a brief description of your research interests and experience. Applications are due December 7th.
