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.

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)

3) Climate adaptation and speciation by mitochondrial-nuclear interactions in a widespread Australian bird, the Eastern Yellow Robin (Eopsaltria australis)
More details:
* 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
