PhD position in Snake Molecular Ecology/Conservation Genetics (Ohio, USA)

Lab of H. Lisle Gibbs
Department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology,
Ohio Biodiversity Conservation Partnership
Ohio State University

I am interested in recruiting a Ph.D. student, to begin in Fall 2016, to work on the molecular ecology/conservation genetics of Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnakes (Sistrurus catenatus). The research would focus on assessing levels of genetic variation and connectivity among rattlesnake populations in Ohio using genomic techniques with the specific focus to be decided jointly with the student. The project would involve a combination of lab and fieldwork. The student would join an active lab which applies genomic techniques and informatics analyses to a wide range of questions in evolutionary biology, ecology and conservation in snakes, birds, and salamanders. The position would be funded through a Graduate Research Assistantship through the Ohio Biodiversity Conservation Partnership and support from Ohio State University. The Department of EEOB provides year-round financial support (~ $28K/yr plus benefits) for PhD students for the duration of their program.

Interested students should contact Dr. H. Lisle Gibbs, Department of EEOB, Ohio State University at with a statement of interest, a CV, transcripts and GRE scores if available. I will start reviewing applications on 15 October. Please see the lab ( and department ( websites for more information.
