Undergraduate students

I am looking for highly motivated undergraduate students looking to gain experience in invertebrate zoology and comparative phylogenetic methods.
Students with well reliability, organization qualities, and intellectual curiosity are most welcome. 

Graduate students

Graduate students should be self-motivated, intellectually curious, determined, and able to work as part of a team.
You will be trained to analyze next-generation sequence data. If you are interested in systematics/phylogenomics, you will participate in fieldwork expeditions in the US and abroad.
If what interests you is comparative development, you'll anticipate training in working with non-model organisms.
