Prof. Vicki Friesen has an opening for a Canadian graduate student (MSc or PhD) to study evolutionary and conservation genomics of birds. Several projects are possible, such as population genomics of resistance to avian influenza in murres; adaptation and conservation genomics of guillemots; and local adaptation and speciation in Haida Gwaii land birds. Most projects have direct conservation or management applications. A solid theoretical foundation in evolutionary genetics is essential. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience with genomics/bioinformatics. All projects involve field work, often on remote islands, and so prior field experience is an asset, ideally with birds or marine animals. The successful applicant will join a dynamic group of faculty and students studying ecology and evolution at Queen’s University (see https://www.friesenlab.ca/ and https://biology.queensu.ca/). Please send a resume or curriculum vitae, informal transcript, and contact information for two academic references to Dr. Vicki Friesen (firstname.lastname@example.org). Deadline for inquiries: 30 April 2023, but please apply as soon as possible. Black and Indigenous students, People of Colour, and members of the LGBTQ2+ communities are especially encouraged to apply and will be eligible for extra support.
