Graduate student positions in plant evolutionary ecology at the University of Guelph

I am looking for graduate students (MS or PhD) interested in studying (1) the evolution and maintenance of gynodioecy (a breeding system where female and hermaphroditic plants coexist) or (2) the effect of pollinator declines on floral evolution in native wildflowers.

For more information on these projects and my lab, check out:

Students will have considerable freedom to develop their projects, and could start in either Fall 2019 or Winter 2020.

Interested candidates should email me at Please include a statement of interest, CV, and transcript (unofficial is fine). Because of funding restrictions, preference will be given to candidates who are Canadian citizens or landed immigrants.
