Welcome. We are team of evolutionary biologists studying how animals adapt to novel and extreme environments. Our research blends physiology, genomics, and evolutionary biology.

The Velotta Lab is based at the University of Denver, Colorado. We love being in the mountains, near the environments we study.

We are hiring a full-time laboratory research technician to support our NIH-funded work on the role of phenotypic plasticity in adaptive evolution in deer mice! Apply here: https://jobs.du.edu/en-us/job/495567/lab-technician-velotta-lab. And email me with any questions!

WE’RE RECRUITING! If you are a student or postdoc interested in evolutionary biology, physiology, and/or genomics of vertebrates, e-mail me at jonathan.velotta@du.edu

The Velotta Lab is proudly located in the Department of Biology Sciences at the University of Denver
