General PhD students / Post-docs

People who might be interested in joining the lab can contact me at any time. I am always open to discuss potential projects that would be suitable for the lab profile. There are many possibilities to get financial support for PhD-students and, especially, PostDocs, both nationally and from abroad. Examples include the Swedish Research Council, the Wenner-Gren Foundation, Carl Tryggers Foundation and the Marie Curie Foundation.


The Evolutionary Biology Centre (EBC) at Uppsala University

My lab is affiliated with the Department of Evolutionary Biology and SciLifeLab Uppsala. The Evolutionary Biology Centre at Uppsala University and the SciLifeLab are vibrant research venues with many national and international collaborators which provide a stimulating research atmosphere with high potential to learn from each others experiences.



Master / Project students

If you are an undergraduate you might be interested in conducting a shorter research project or your masters in my lab. The projects will naturally be foucsed on labwork or computer based analyses of genetic and genomic data but there will potentially be options for more hands-on field based experimental work, especially during spring and summer seasons.
