The newly established Voje lab at the Natural History Museum (University of Oslo) seeks to understand the processes that govern phenotypic evolution on micro- to macroevolutionary timescales. Research in the lab is on a wide variety of taxa and we combine empirical work and methods development to obtain a deeper understanding of the connection between microevolutionary processes and evolutionary change on longer time intervals. What is the relative importance of adaptation and constraints on phenotypic diversification? To what extent is microevolutionary theory helpful in explaining large-scale patterns of evolution of life?
We will announce a PhD position early next year (2022) to work on phenotypic evolution. More info soon.
