Current openings:

Postdoctoral fellows:

Postdoctoral fellows are critical for keeping UC at the forefront of research. I have been most fortunate to have trained a number in my laboratory. They have brought a tremendous spirit of excitement to the group with their discoveries and unbridled enthusiasm. Most have gone on to successful careers in academia and industry – something that gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

We currently have no funded openings for postdoctoral fellows but are always open to intriguing possibilities. If you are interested in discussing the various options for pursuing external funding (e.g., Marie Curie Outgoing Fellowships, NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowships, or Rutherford Fellowships), please with a list of research interests and a copy of your CV.  We are inviting applications for a postdoctoral researcher to study the structure, dynamics, and evolution of ecological networks.

Graduate students:

We currently have no funded openings for graduate students in the group. The University of Canterbury, however, offers doctoral fellowships twice a year whose deadlines generally fall in mid-May and mid-October. If you are interested in applying for one of these scholarships, please well in advance to express your interest and discuss the application process.
