I will crash this party and humbly request a specimen/s of Phycochus graniceps in EtOH for sequencing.

Best regards

> We are seeking potential Ph.D. students interested in a three-year programme to study the evolution and systematics of New Zealand beetles.  The student would be part of a team of that will be DNA sequencing representative beetles from all major groups occurring in New Zealand and will also lead an independent study of a monophyletic group their choice to address questions about New Zealand biogeography, beetle systematics, and natural history.  The research will involve field work throughout New Zealand, specimen sorting, management, imaging and identification, DNA sequencing and downstream phylogenetic analyses.

> The project is based in the New Zealand Arthropod Collection, Landcare Research, Auckland. The DNA sequencing will be performed in the Ecological Genetics laboratory, also at Landcare Research. Enrolment will be through the University of Auckland. There will also be opportunities to interact with researchers at the University of Auckland and the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution.
