Work in the Runcie lab is motived by questions of genetic variation, plasticity, and molecular mechanisms. Most of our projects involve the generation and analysis of large, complex datasets. Therefore, I am particularly interested in students with a strong quantitative background, or who are committed to developing skills in statistics, data analysis, and basic programming.
If you are interested in joining my lab, read a few of our papers, think about what kinds of projects you’d like to pursue, and then contact me. I can currently accept students through the Horticulture and Agronomy, Plant Biology, Biophysics, and Biostatistics graduate groups. Please give me a sense of why you are interested in graduate school and what you hope to study, along with a current CV.
I encourage prospective graduate students to explore fellowship opportunities such:
I’m always interested in recruiting talented postdoctoral candidates, and I welcome inquiries about opportunities. I encourage potential postdocs to look into possibilities for fellowship support. These include:
