Graduate research (Masters and PhD projects)

Fully funded positions are available for motivated and creative graduate students. Some potential projects topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The evolution of geographically variable in sexual dimorphism (co-supervised by Dr. Carla Sgrò)
  • The mutational spectrum of sex-specific variation (co-supervised by Dr. Damian Dowling)
  • Sex chromosome evolution
  • Assorted topics in evolutionary theory
