Postdoc and PhD positions: apply now!
Master and PhD research projects:
Students interested in research on speciation and the genomics of
speciation should contact me to discuss possible projects and funding
Postdoc opportunities: Several
international funding bodies (Marie Curie, Human Frontiers, EMBO, AXA)
provide fellowships for young researchers who wish to conduct a postdoc
in France and in this international centre for research in Evolutionary
Biology in Montpellier, South of France. If you are interested in
applying and your research interests are broadly similar to mine, contact me
