Graduate Students: Glor typically advises two or three PhD students, who work on a diversity of research projects, ranging from experimental genetic studies of reproductive isolation in anoles to macroevolutionary analyses of species diversification on Madagascar. He also serves on numerous student committees and informally advises other students in the KU EEB graduate program. Glor encourages prospective graduate students to get in touch with him. His students are members of the KU EEB graduate program. If you are interested in joining his lab through this program, you should contact him prior to applying with some basic information about yourself, your previous research experience, and why you think we might be a good academic fit. Please also include a copy of your CV that provides information about your educational background and GPA.
Undergraduate students: Undergraduates have a critical role in Glor's research program. Promising undergraduates typically are paired with a graduate student to acquire training in core research methods while assisting with acquisition of the graduate student’s data. Such training requires a serious commitment, typically starting with 8–10 hours a week for the duration of a semester. Once an undergraduate has obtained proficiency in one or more research methods, they will have opportunities to pursue their own independent research, either for credit, informally, or in pursuit of an honors thesis. Throughout this process, undergraduates are expected to begin digesting the primary literature through reading groups and independent study. Undergraduates are routinely authors on papers from Glor's group, and regularly are included in its field work. Seven undergraduates or postgraduates for whom Glor served as primary research adviser have gone on to join elite graduate programs in ecology and evolutionary biology at other institutions: Allie Ossip-Klein (Martins Lab, University of Indiana), Seth Rudman (Schluter Lab, UBC), Ryane Logsdon (UC Davis), Audrey Kelly (Pfennig Lab, UNC), Shane Campell-Staton (Edwards/Losos Labs Harvard), Shea Lambert (Wiens Lab, Arizona), Dan MacGuigan (Near Lab, Yale, starting Fall 2014).
