Along the briny beach:
We cannot do with more than four,
To give a hand to each.”Lewis Carroll

Position available for a Graduate Student / Postdoc
We are currently seeking a PhD student / postdoc to study the dynamics of bacterial adaptation under prolonged resource exhaustion. This highly interdisciplinary project involves evolutionary experiments, high throughput genomics, microbiology and bioinformatics. For background into the project see here.
About the Lab
The broad area of research in the lab is evolutionary genomics. We focus on understanding how the two most fundamental evolutionary forces: mutation and natural selection drive forward medically and ecologically important evolutionary processes. Evolutionary processes studied in the lab include the accumulation of antibiotic resistance, cancer evolution, bacterial adaptation under fluctuating conditions, the evolution of microbial genome composition, and pathogen diversification. Our research is multi-disciplinary, combining evolutionary theory, microbiology, experimental evolution, computational biology and genomics.
