PhD in New Zealand

We have a vacancy in our growing research group for a PhD student to
work on food-web assembly and decay. The work will be based in the
School of Biological Sciences at the University of Canterbury, New
Zealand, under the supervision of Dr. Jason Tylianakis. The position
will begin in October 2011 if possible, and will continue for three

Complex networks of biotic interactions play an important role in the
maintenance of biodiversity, mediation of ecosystem responses to
environmental change, and the stability of ecosystems and their
services, on which human well-being depends. This project will
determine how real-world plant-herbivore-parasitoid networks are
assembled, flourish then decay through time and in response to changes
in basal resource availability. The work will have a mixture of
empirical and analytical components, and there will be room for
refinement of the research questions to align with the intellectual
interests of the candidate.

More details can be found here: Closing date is
5 August 2011.
