Graduate Opportunities

Are you interested in insects? Curious about learning more about evolutionary relationships, biogeography, ecology, systematics, phylogenetic theory? Insects are one of the best groups of animals to use for studying macro and micro-evolutionary patterns. My lab focuses on research on the systematics of flies and has worked on other groups such as dragonflies and damselflies. We use a synthetic approach to study any groups that we are interested in. This involves collecting morphological, molecular and ecological data on the group and synthesizing it to produce robust species level concepts and phylogenetic hypotheses of relationships. Our research is global.

Candidates must be motivated, organized, enthusiastic, and interested in both lab based research (microscope work and molecular work) and field work and related travel. Work will be conducted in my labs at the K.W. Neatby Building (housing the Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnids and Nematodes - 960 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, ON, Canada). Students will complete course work at Carleton University (less than 10 minutes away) and will have access to lab space there as well.

Contact me if you are interested in this type of research. All projects will be considered - Undergraduate thesis or Summer NSERC, M.Sc., Ph.D. or Post Doc. I have NSERC funding to supplement student grants, scholarships and TA-ships. Of course, the more money that you bring, the more that you will have to create an exciting and dynamic research project.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
