Join us!

We welcome motivated postdocs, JRFs, and graduate students who want to join us. However, we are a fairly large group at this point and so we must turn away many good applicants. If you are absolutely committed to research in evolution or ecology, read on!

It is important that you read and think about our research before you approach me for a position. I also recommend reading some of our papers so that you get a sense for the kind of work we do. If you find our research interesting, please email me with your CV and a brief description of your research interests. I cannot respond to emails that do not include this information.

Summer interns: We are no longer accepting applications for summer internships in 2017.

MSc project interns: We do not have space to accept MSc interns in 2017-2018.

PhD applicants: PhD students either join the lab through the joint NCBS admissions, or register externally with UGC/CSIR/equivalent fellowships. If you fall in either category and are interested in our work, please email me. I am likely to accept 1-2 PhD students in 2018.

Postdoc applicants: We have a funded postdoctoral position beginning January 2018, to work with bacterial communities associated with flour beetles. For more information, please see the advertisement. If your research interests fall outside this specific project but are related to our other work, I would be happy to discuss potential projects and funding possibilities.

JRFs/Project assistants: Currently I do not have a funded project assistant position. Please contact me if you have a UGC/CSIR/equivalent fellowship and are interested in our work.
