The Gibbons lab (https://wordpress.clarku.edu/jgibbons/) in the Biology Department at Clark University is accepting applications for PhD students to start in August 2016. The overarching research theme of our lab is to understand how evolutionary forces shape the genome and how these changes influence phenotype. Our lab uses an evolutionary genomics lens to broadly study (1) fungal domestication, and (2) fungal copy number variation. To gain a comprehensive understanding of these topics, we heavily utilize whole genome next generation sequencing data to characterize patterns of genomic variation. Additionally, we pair comparative and population genomic analyses with functional experiments spanning the realms of transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics. Applicants interested in fungal biology will also have opportunities to interact and collaborate with the Hibbett lab (http://www.clarku.edu/faculty/dhibbett/)....
