The Male Pregnancy, Sexual Selection, and Evolution Lab
We're always looking for intelligent and enthusiastic people interested in joining the lab's mission to investigate evolutionary patterns and processes. If you think you might be interested in joining the Jones Lab, feel free to contact any of us via email.
Graduate students in the Jones Lab study a variety of topics in evolutionary biology. In general, the graduate student is free to pick his or her own project, as long as it fits into the broad evolutionary interests of the lab and has the potential to produce interesting results. Projects in the lab usually take advantage of modern molecular approaches or computational techniques, but essentially any project that addresses a consequential issue in evolutionary biology would fit well within the lab's interests, provided we have the equipment and expertise to carry it out.
All of the current graduate students in the Jones Lab are working toward doctoral degrees, and we don't typically accept masters students.
If you're interested in graduate studies in the Jones Lab, it's imperative to contact us by email to find out whether or not we have space to accept new students. Visit our People page for links to pages with our email addresses.
In any given semester, we usually have several undergraduate students working in the lab. At Texas A&M, freshmen and sophomores can receive credit for research by registering for BIOL291. Juniors and seniors can receive credit by registering for BIOL491. These courses are a great opportunity for students to learn about research and make a contribution to real science. We typically do not hire undergraduates to work in the lab unless they've already worked with us via BIOL291 or BIOL491.
If you think you might be interested in doing undergraduate research in the Jones Lab, contact Dr. Jones or any of the graduate students via email. Visit our People page for links to pages with our email addresses.
