We study sex chromosome evolution and speciation. We work in the interface between evolutionary ecology and genomics, and focus increasingly on integrating ecological data with high-throughput sequence sets.

PhDs and Post-docs
There are several opportunities to apply for postdoctoral fellowships, e.g. Wenner-Gren (October), Tryggers (May), and Marie-Curie (August). PhD student positions will be announced through Lund University and on this website.
