The Molecular Evolution Lab Macquarie University, Sydney

What we do

We are a research lab in the wonderful Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia (move-in date June 2014). We spend our time working on the genomes of a variety of organisms to understand how and why they change over time.

Our work bridges spatial and temporal scales: from mutations that occur within a single individual over a few decades, to the long-term evolution of globally-distributed clades of species over millions of years. We also work on theoretical aspects of molecular evolution, and develop new statistical methods and software to analyse huge DNA datasets.

Join us!

If you're interested in joining us, please get in touch. We're passionate about what we do and we'd love to hear from you. You don't need experience, just enthusiasm and a willingness to apply yourself. We can accommodate undergrads, MSc students, PhD Students, and PostDocs. We are interested in folks with diverse backgrounds and welcome new project ideas and collaborations.
