    The Integrative Wildlife Conservation lab at Trent University, in collaboration with the Lithops Research and Conservation Foundation, is offering a unique PhD project on the eco-evolutionary and conservation dynamics of Lithops spp., a genus of small succulent plants occurring across desert landscapes in southern Africa. In the wild, Lithops are susceptible to human collection, habitat loss and climate change, and currently there are important knowledge gaps related to Lithops phylogeny and ecology that are impacting rigorous conservation status assessment and protection. The project will involve several critical facets, first consisting of Lithops genome sequencing to support re-assessment of genus phylogeny and evolutionary linkages. Once species/subspecies status is better established, the project may undertake a variety of directions involving fieldwork, including: 1) Using hyperspectral imaging to assess plant health and composition in relation to local environmental conditions; 2) Remote sensing to determine habitat suitability needs and potential for recolonization; 3) Population and meta-population viability analysis to assess scenarios for long-term persistence; and 4) Species distribution modeling to better understand potential responses of populations to climate change. The model for fieldwork will be L. schwantesii, which is among the most widespread and best-studied Lithops species in Namibia. The PhD student will have the opportunity to develop specific research questions within the scope of the larger project.

    Successful candidates MUST have an MSc in Ecology, Conservation Biology, or related field, demonstrated evidence of peer-reviewed publications, strong lab and field skills, and an interest in working collaboratively within a large and diverse research group. Additional desirable qualifications include DNA sequencing, bioinformatics, remote sensing and GIS analysis, and working in remote field conditions.  Start date September 2022 or January 2023. 

    To apply, send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, unofficial academic transcript, and contact information for 3 references to: Dennis Murray (dennismurray@trentu.ca).

    For additional details, see www.dennismurray.ca and www.lithopsfoundation.com.

    The position will be filled as soon as a suitable candidate is found.

    Two graduate positions in plant systems biology are available in the Wilkins laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba.  

    The Wilkins lab is interested in understanding how plants process environmental information using gene regulatory networks. We use a variety of functional genomics assays (bulk tissue and single cell) and computational approaches to probe these questions. We apply RNA-sequencing, open chromatin mapping, and proteomic assays to study how individual cells, tissues, organs, and whole plants respond to climate change associated stressors like high temperatures and drought.  

    The graduate projects will focus on characterizing spatial and temporal patterns of regulated gene expression in rice, canola, or soybean and may include some field-based experiments. Within this research topic, students will be encouraged to develop their own lines of inquiry through discussion with Dr. Wilkins and other laboratory team members.
