Joshua A. Shapiro

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at Bryn Mawr College. I am an evolutionary biologist, with interests in population genetics, quantitative genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics. This is my website, in case that was not clear.

Before coming to Bryn Mawr, I was a postdoc in the Kruglyak Lab, part of the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton University (though the lab has now moved to UCLA. I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Ecology and Evolution at the University of Chicago, where I worked with Chung-I Wu.

If you are interested in more detail about my past activities, you can download a copy of my curriculum vitae. You can also find a fairly current listing of my publications at Google Scholar, and you feel free to follow me on twitter @jashapiro.


I am always looking for talented students who want to get their feet wet with biological research, especially if their interests align with mine (evolution, genomics, bioinformatics, etc.). If you think you might be interested in doing research in my lab, whether at the bench, in the field, or even in front of a computer, let me know.
