Recruiting EVO Ph.D. students

Dr. Anne Stone and Dr. Melissa Wilson Sayres are currently co-chairing the Evolutionary Biology program at Arizona State University.

We are a mid-sized program with 21 current students, and an active community group including a weekly journal club with faculty and students, annual research seminar organized by students, and shared outreach events (like extracting DNA at the ASU homecoming event). Our faculty span multiple units including Biology, Anthropology, Engineering, and Chemistry.

Evolutionary Ecology Laboratory Assistant

Description:
This is a paid ($8/hour) undergraduate research opportunity. The aim of this project is to test physiological limits of heat tolerance in the highly invasive gypsy moth. We will be conducting a laboratory experiment measuring ecologically relevant phenotypes in various temperature regimes and performing a genome-wide association of genomic regions to phenotypic variation within and among gypsy moth populations.
