Looking for accommodation

message from Isabel Douterelo: We have a new PhD student in Engineering (Carolina) and she is looking for accommodation [she will be visiting the Molecular Ecology lab], she just started so she needs long term accommodation. Do you know any students in APS interested in sharing accommodation or with an available room?
Carolina’s e-mail is ccaleropreciado1@sheffield.ac.uk

PhD positions at Monash University

Three PhD positions on wildlife genomics are available in the Sunnucks Lab (Persistence and Adaptation Research group – PART) at Monash University in Melbourne Australia. https://sites.google.com/site/sunnucksresearchgroup/home

The projects can have a strong component of field biology and/or genomics depending on the interests of the candidates.

1) Genetic rescue of a critically endangered bird, the Helmeted honeyeater (Lichenostomus melanops cassidix)
More details: https://docs.google.com/a/monash.edu/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxzdW5udWNrc3Jlc2VhcmNoZ3JvdXB8Z3g6NTczYzU1NDQyMTBlNDhhNg

2) Genetic rescue of an endangered plant, the australian daisy (Rutidosis leptorrhynchoides)
More details: https://docs.google.com/a/monash.edu/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxzdW5udWNrc3Jlc2VhcmNoZ3JvdXB8Z3g6M2RiNDIyMTQ3OWQ4MGFmNQ

3) Climate adaptation and speciation by mitochondrial-nuclear interactions in a widespread Australian bird, the Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis)
More details: https://docs.google.com/a/monash.edu/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxzdW5udWNrc3Jlc2VhcmNoZ3JvdXB8Z3g6MTIzM2NlNmZhN2Q3YTJkYQ
* This project can immediately host a Master Student that is already enrolled in a program. The master project will have a strong filed biology component to study local adaptation. The master student will be in a strong position to continue with a PhD expanding the project into genomics, extended field program and/or distribution modelling

2 positions for masters or post PhD students who are looking for experience

The two positions are:

1) Data analysis volunteer
2) General volunteer
Both positions will be heavily involved in both the terrestrial (tortoise, marine turtles, landbird and seabird) and marine (SCUBA surveys) monitoring programmes, specifically to assist me in review of long-term data sets and subsequent implementation of any changes required to improve data quality and outputs. Additionally we hope to write-up some of our data for publication. Plus they would get to spend six to eight months on Aldabra!
