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. We are actively seeking new graduate students for fall 2019!
