Position: PhD Opportunities in Evolutionary Ecology
Entity: Auburn University
Location: Trinidad & Tobago
Start date: Fall 2024
“The Bassar lab at Auburn University is inviting applications for PhD students interested in evolutionary ecology starting in fall 2024. Members of the lab address diverse topics in evolutionary ecology including eco-evolutionary feedbacks and their role life history evolution, the evolution of species coexistence, and host-parasite interactions. We address these questions in a diversity of ways, including the development of theory and empirical research. Most of the empirical research involves studies of fish communities (guppies and killifish) on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. Both fish species are amenable to experiments in the lab, in seminatural artificial streams, and natural populations.”
How to Apply:
-Prospective students should email Ron Bassar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Include a cover letter describing your research interests, future goals, and how doing a PhD in the group will help you to achieve those goals.
-Also include a CV and contact information for two references.
