Join the Sharanowski Lab!

Although I am not currently accepting new master students, I may be looking for PhD students for future years. I’m looking for PhD students with a background or demonstrated an interest in one of the following:

  1. – Taxonomy and evolution of Hymenoptera, particularly Ichneumonoidea.
  2. – Bioinformatics, with a focus on biodiversity informatics, or developing tools for studying molecular and/or genome evolution
  3. – Insect Phylogenomics using next-gen sequencing technologies

Unfortunately, I cannot accept students in other subdisciplines of entomology at this time.

Applicants should send an email to Dr. Sharanowski (barb.sharanowski[a]  with the following documents:

  • a CV outlining research experience with references included
  • a copy of current transcripts (covering at least the past 2 years)
  • and a statement of research interests including why you want to join the Sharanowski Lab

Only serious inquiries and those prospective students who follow these instructions will be considered. Preference will be given to USA students or landed immigrants, but international students are encouraged to apply.
Potential post-docs are also welcome to inquire about opportunities. At this time only students eligible for the NSERC Post-doctoral fellowship or students who can obtain their own funding will be considered.

Undergraduates looking to get research experience in entomology with a focus on molecular systematics, taxonomy, or evolution of Hymenoptera are also encouraged to apply.
