In general, research in my group focuses on addressing longstanding questions in evolutionary genetics often through developing novel bioinformatic and genomic methods. I am particularly interested in recruiting scientists with experience using scripting and/or programming languages. In addition, experience working with Drosophila and with basic molecular biology techniques is highly desirable. The most important prerequisite, however, is a passion for evolutionary genomics. If you're interested in joining my group, please get in touch via email to rucorbet (at) ucsc (dot) edu.  


I encourage potential postdocs to email me so that we can determine what projects are a good fit for your interests and goals. 

Graduate Students

I will be accepting graudate students through the Bioinformatics program at UCSC. More information about this graduate program can be found here. Interested prospective students are encouraged to contact me to discuss their interest in joining my lab and to discuss potential projects prior to applying to the program. 

Undergraduate Students

UCSC undergrads who are interested in gaining some research experience are encouraged to contact me as well. Undergraduates need not have any specific skills or research experience. Just be excited to learn about evolutionary genomics. If you do choose to contact me, please try to read through some of our publications and come prepared with questions!
