species jockusch lab's research is focusing on

About Us

Research in the Jockusch lab is aimed at documenting patterns of phenotypic variation and understanding how evolutionary and developmental factors interact to create these patterns. We use a diversity of approaches, including comparative phylogenetics, molecular systematics, and developmental studies of gene function and expression. Researchers in the lab have studied a wide variety of animals, including arthropods, tardigrades, salamanders and skinks.

An NSF-funded postdoctoral position is available to study the evolution of novelty in treehoppers.

We are also actively seeking new graduate students for fall 2019!  Email Elizabeth with a brief description of research interests to learn more.
