The Schenk lab at Ohio University invites applicants for a Master’s and Ph.D. Degree in plant evolution, starting Fall semester, 2020. 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 January 15th.
Interested students should contact Dr. John Schenk (email@example.com) prior to submitting an application (the earlier the better).
