The Lozier Lab ( at The University of Alabama, Dept. of Biological Sciences, is recruiting a highly motivated graduate students to start in the Fall 2018 semester. Students would work on projects related to ongoing NSF-funded studies of bumble bee population genomics to uncover signatures of adaptative and demographic processes within and among species. Students would specifically be working to generate and analyze population-level whole genome resequencing data across multiple species and broad environmental gradients at a large geographic scale, and could also be involved in sequencing and assembly of reference genomes from new bumble bee species using long-read sequencing technologies.

Students would have the opportunity to collaborate with project collaborators across institutions, and to integrate phenotypic data, including physiology and morphology, into genomic analyses.

Students with an interest in population genetics/genomics should contact Jeff Lozier (, with a brief statement of interest, a resume/CV, and an informal academic history (e.g., GPAs, GREs, and relevant coursework list, etc.).

The University of Alabama is the flagship campus of the University System of Alabama, with an enrollment of over 35,000 students.The University is committed to achieving excellence as one of the country’s primary centers of research and education. It is located in the vibrant college town of Tuscaloosa, AL, which boasts many cultural and athletic activities. The campus also benefits from the close proximity to the Birmingham metropolitan community.

The University of Alabama is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
