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!

Please read and think about our research before you approach me for a position. I also recommend reading some of our papers so that you know what 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 summer internship applications for 2019. We expect to get 1-2 students from the Indian Academy summer research fellowship program.

MSc project interns: We do not have space to accept MSc interns in 2019.

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 one or two PhD students in 2019.

Postdoc applicants: Currently I do not have a funded postdoctoral position, but I welcome applications from motivated and independent postdocs. Even if your research interests are not perfectly matched with ongoing projects in the lab, I would be happy to discuss potential projects and funding possibilities.

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