Accepting Graduate Students for Fall 2009
The new lab of Alan R. Lemmon in the Department of Scientific
Computing at Florida State University (Tallahassee) is now accepting Ph.D.
students interested in studying phylogenetics, phylogeography, speciation,
bioinformatics, and/or population genetics. Members of the lab are
encouraged (but not required) to develop independent projects that combine
aspects of theoretical (statistical/computational) and empirical
evolutionary biology. The current focus of the Lemmon lab is to develop
statistical methods for phylogeography and phylogenetics using genomic data,
as well as to development large numbers of nuclear markers using
The Department of Scientific Computing at Florida State
University (http://www.csit.fsu.edu/) is a unique, interdisciplinary group
of faculty and students who test scientific questions and develop methods by
applying computational and statistical techniques to interesting problems in
Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Geology, and Chemistry.
Dr. Lemmon is also a member of the Department of Biology, which
allows him to advise students with primarily empirical projects.
Members of the Lemmon Lab have access to the following
Top-ranked High Performance Computing Facility (1500+ cores)
State of the art genetics lab
Reduced rate at University of Florida Genome Center
Certified Nimblegen Microarray Facility
State of the art equipment for behavioral experiments
State of the art live animal facility
Apalachicola National Forest (minutes from campus!)
Interested individuals should visit the lab website (
