Joining the lab, in general:

Graduate students can join the lab through both the Cellular, Molecular, and Microbial Biology (CMMB) and Organismal Biology, Ecology, and Evolution (OBEE) programs. I encourage interested undergraduates, graduate students, and post-doctoral fellows to contact me directly.

The research environment at the University of Montana:

The Division of Biological Sciences and the College of Forestry is home to a diverse group of labs, many of which have overlapping interests in microbes, genomics, evolution, symbiosis, and insect biology. In particular, my lab shares a floor of a building with the following five labs, from which faculty, students, and post-docs all frequently and easily mix:

Brandon Cooper, Drosophila-Wolbachia genetics and evolution.

Jeff Good, mammalian population genetics and genomics.

Scott Miller, microbial evolution and ecology.

Lila Fishman, plant evolutionary genetics.

Zac Cheviron, genomics and physiology of adaptation.
