Welcome

The deserts, mountains, and forests of Southern Arizona provide a wonderful setting to live and study the evolution of plant diversity.

Welcome to the Barker Lab in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, University of Arizona. We are located in BioSciences West 321. Keep track of our updates and other items of of interest on twitter @BarkerLab

If you are interested in joining the lab, please feel free to contact a current member (People). Our lab meetings are currently at 10AM on Tuesday mornings in BSW 321. Those of you on campus should feel free to stop by and hear about our science!

I am currently accepting graduate students for the upcoming Fall 2017 round of admissions. I am always eager to hear from potential new postdocs that may be interested in applying for NSF Biology Postdocs, NIH Postdocs, UA EEB’s Simpson Postdoctoral Fellowship, and UA’s PERT Postdoc Program. I strongly encourage all candidates, even those with botanical backgrounds, to look at the PERT program. Although PERT has a focus on insects, please contact Dr. Barker to discuss our recent work on insect evolution and plant-insect interactions.
