The D'Aloia Lab in the Department of Biology at the University of Toronto
Mississauga invites applications for PhD and/or MSc positions in marine
molecular ecology. The positions will begin September 2022.
The central theme of our research program is understanding the patterns,
causes, and consequences of dispersal and gene flow in the ocean. Current
research topics include: (1) disentangling historical and contemporary
factors that shape the distribution of genetic variation in natural
populations; (2) understanding how kin structure emerges in marine
populations; and (3) exploring the usefulness of genomic data to support
sustainable fisheries and marine conservation efforts. Our group combines
field work, genomics, and theory to pursue these topics. Most of our projects
focus on small coral reef fishes, but we also have ongoing and planned
projects on gastropods, echinoderms, and sponges. We have field sites in the
Caribbean and Bay of Fundy and are also supportive of students who wish to
explore freshwater projects in Ontario. For details about our ongoing
research: click here.
Our lab is a good fit for students who are passionate about the application of
genetics/genomics to answer fundamental ecological questions and/or to support
conservation. Our lab is well-equipped for molecular benchwork and scientific
diving. For PhD positions, there is latitude to co-develop projects, based on
