Postdoctoral researchers

We also welcome inquiries about postdoctoral research positions. Although we do not have funding for postdoctoral researchers at the moment, it is possible to apply for a University of Sydney Postdoctoral Fellowship (application deadline in September). Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards are also available through the Australian Research Council (application deadline in May). Both of these schemes are highly competitive.

Postgraduate students

Students interested in undertaking a PhD in molecular ecology, molecular evolution, phylogenetics, symbiosis, biology of termites and other arthropods, and ancient DNA analysis are encouraged to contact us.

Potential PhD candidates can find out more information here. Australian citizens, Australian permanent residents, and New Zealand citizens are eligible for Australian Postgraduate Awards. International students are eligible for a number of scholarships, including IPRS and USyd IS.

Honours students

Honours students interested in undertaking projects in molecular ecology, molecular evolution, phylogenetics, symbiosis, biology of termites and other arthropods, and ancient DNA analysis are encouraged to contact us.

General information about Honours can be found here.

Undergraduate researchers

We welcome inquiries from undergraduate volunteers interested in working on molecular ecology, molecular evolution, phylogenetics, and bioinformatics.
