Graduate Fellowships - Insect Systematics and Evolution, Pennsylvania State University

Posted: October 5, 2012

Multiple graduate opportunities are available for students interested in insect evolution, especially phylogenetics, descriptive taxonomy, comparative morphology, biodiversity informatics, collections science, and evolutionary-developmental biology and evolutionary genomics.

(the latter two themes with the Hines Lab)

Students will be part of a highly integrative and energetic lab group, led by Drs. Andrew R. Deans (PI) and István Mikó (research associate), based at the Frost Entomological Museum. Current expertise focuses on Hymenoptera, but students interested in other arthropod groups will be considered. Research/travel stipends available.
