MRes candidates
If you consider applying to MRes, you would get the opportunity to develop a project in population or evolutionary genomics. MRes candidates are expected to have an interest in biology, human evolution, or anthropology alongside strong computational skills with background in mathematics, statistics, or computer science. Students are expected to master at least one language (such as Matlab, R, Perl, or Phython).

Undergraduate students
Research opportunities include assisting an ongoing project while receiving training or work on independent projects. Research experiences vary in duration from a single academic term to a longer period. Interested students are expected to have experience and interest in biology, human evolution, or anthropology alongside more quantitative fields such as mathematics, statistics, or computer science. Undergraduates at all levels are welcome to take part of the ongoing research at my lab. Students who can program in at least one language (such as Matlab, R, Perl, or Phython) are particularly welcome to apply.



The Bioinformatics hub
As part of the Bioinformatics hub we also offer services to other faculty members. Those who wish to gain experience in bioinformatics may get the oppertunity to work on a larger variety of projects.
