We are located in the Center for Computational Molecular Biology (CCMB) at Brown University. Our lab space has been recently renovated and is shared with other computational groups run by Sohini Ramachandran, Lorin Crawford and Ritambhara Singh. Our lab also benefits from close ties with Dan Weinreich and David Rand in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, and the larger Brown community of evolutionary biologists.
For graduate students
If you are a graduate student interested in evolution and genetics with a quantitative or computational background, please contact me. Depending on your training and research interests, graduate students can join via these doctoral programs: Computational Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology or Molecular Biology, Cell Biology & Biochemistry.
We are looking to hire postdocs. Please contact me if you would like to find out more about opportunities. To apply for a position, please send me your cv, at least one copy of a relevant publication and the names of two letter writers. I work together with postdocs to identify and develop projects related to any of the lab’s research topics, or to develop new projects.
Undergraduates interested in pursuing research in the lab should ideally have taken at least one semester of programming (e.g. CS150 or CS170) or my class (BIO 1435) at Brown; familiarity with Unix utilities, python, and/or R is a plus. Email Emilia Huerta-Sanchez about joining the lab, and also note that UTRA can fund undergraduate researchers for a semester or the summer.
