    We are seeking for a PhD student with interest in avian evolution and behaviour. The proposed project looks into the evolution of avian nests, and involves fieldwork looking for bird nests in different locations in Australia and broad-scale comparative analyses. Specific topics are flexible and you are encouraged to contribute your own ideas. Experience doing fieldwork with birds and experience with R are highly desirable. We are keen to foster a diversity of ideas and perspectives in the lab, so we especially welcome applicants from under-represented groups.

    The University of Melbourne offers Scholarships for international and domestic students and we can discuss other funding opportunities. https://biosciences.unimelb.edu.au/study/phd-studies-in-biosciences

    If interested, please send an e-mail (before Sept 1st) to: iliana.medina@unimelb.edu.au with your CV, a brief statement with your research interests and career path and academic transcripts (these don’t need to be official). 

    Planned start date: May 2021

    Deadline official applications: 30th of September (for international applicants), 31st of October for domestic applicants.
