Prospective Students

I have an opening for a Canadian graduate student (MSc or PhD) to study evolutionary and conservation genomics of birds. Several projects are possible; most involve Arctic seabirds, but some involve temperate land birds. Most have direct conservation or management applications. A solid theoretical foundation in evolutionary genetics is essential – do not apply if you do not have this. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience with genomics/bioinformatics. Projects involve field work on remote islands, and so prior field experience is an asset, preferably with birds or marine animals.  The successful applicant will join a dynamic group of faculty and students studying ecology, evolution and conservation at Queen’s University (see Please send a resume or curriculum vitae, informal transcript, and contact information for two academic references to Dr. Vicki Friesen ( Deadline for inquiries: Apr. 30, 2023. Applications from Black, Indigenous, Coloured and other racialized groups, as well as members of the LGBTQ2+ communities are especially encouraged to apply and will be eligible for extra support.
