A position is available for a Ph.D. student to investigate the impact of abiotic and biotic factors on the diversification of flowering plants by using the species-rich and ecologically important genus Piper as a model. This research will focus on three evolutionary forces: i) climate, i) pollination (a mutualistic process benefiting both the plant and its partner) and iii) plants' chemical defense (an antagonistic process developed to counteract insect herbivory).
A position is available for a Ph.D. student to study the phylogenetics and systematics of Piper section Enckea (Piperaceae). The section comprises ~60 species from the Amazon to Mexico and the Caribbean Islands, consisting of shrubs to small trees. This project will investigate the molecular phylogenetic relationships of one of the earlier branching lineages in the genus using a combination of next generation sequencing data, morphology, and biogeography.
