Graduate Students & Postdocs
I encourage those interested in working with me as a Postdoc or for a PhD or MSc by Research to contact me directly.
Although internal funding for graduate studies is currently unavailable, I am happy to discuss self-funding arrangements and to help students develop collaborative studentships with external funding bodies, either in the UK (e.g. DEFRA, Leverhulme Trust Study Abroad) or from commonwealth (e.g. Commonwealth Scholarships) or international sources (US students: Rhodes Scholarships, Marshall Scholarships; Canadian students: NSERC). Prospective students from developing countries should also look at opportunities such as the Baldin Fellowship.
For those interested in postdoctoral positions, the following funding links may be helpful:
Newton International Fellowship
Marie Curie Fellowships
Human Frontier Science Program
Branco Weiss Fellowship
See our Research Group page for additional information about our graduate programmes and for descriptions of potential projects for MSc by research students.
I am frequently looking for dedicated and enthusiastic research interns to assist in the collection of data on a variety of projects at my field site in Puerto Rico and to help here at Exeter with the analysis of previously collected data from a range of different systems. Many of my previous interns have gone on to graduate school or to work at government agencies. Field-based positions typically require a 4-6 month committment. If interested, contact me with a copy of your CV and description of your research interests but bear in mind that positions are limited.
