Opportunities

Undergraduate Students


I welcome undergraduate researchers in my lab.

If you are interested in conducting an Independent Research Project or an Honours Research Project, please contact me by e-mail.

I prefer students who intend to stay for two semesters rather than only one.

Examples of topics that have been studied in my lab:

  • Density-dependent dispersal of rotifers.
  • Community interaction with exotic species:¬†facilitation or resistance?
  • Differential effects of species and genetic diversity on community dynamics.
  • Effects of predator-induced spine formation on competitive dynamics in rotifers.
  • Competition and coexistence between Brachionus calyciflorus and Brachionus rubens on a single food source.
  • Allozyme analysis: its use in lab experiments with Brachionus calyciflorus as an effective method for identification of different strains.

Graduate Students


Positions are available in my lab for graduate students (M.Sc. or Ph.D.) who apply for their own funding.

Potential students should be interested in research on population or community dynamics and/or evolutionary dynamics. Students will normally combine experimental (lab or field) and theoretical approaches. Please submit a CV and a brief statement of interest, preferably by email.

Postdoctoral Fellows


Postdoctoral research projects are often tailored to the individual joining the lab through intensive discussions between myself and the postdoc.

There is no funding currently available for postdoctoral researchers. However, I always welcome postdocs who have their own funding.

For a list of funding opportunities available through external agencies or foundations, please see Postdoctoral Funding Opportunities.
