Graduate position in Systematic Biology (Sweden)

The project “Phylogenetic and biogeographic analysis of the genus
Pavonia (plant family Malvaceae) using gene capture and Next Generation
Sequencing” seeks to answer the following questions: How are the
species of Pavonia related? Are the polyploids in the genus of hybrid
origin, and thus is the phylogeny a network? Is there a pattern in the
timing of when polyploidy arose? What is the biogeographic history of
the genus? What factors (e.g., geographic, edaphic, biotic) can explain
the high number of species in the neotropics?

There is scope within the project for significant methodological
development, probably in collaboration with theoretical
