If you are interested in my research don't hesitate to contact me. I'm always looking for creative and motivated students and collaborators. Research can be theoretical, experimental, or both.
PhD fellowship in Evolutionary Ecology
Michael Hochberg and I are advertising a PhD fellowship (topic: "What governs the dynamics of a species range?") within the GAIA Doctoral School of the University of Montpellier. Application deadline via the GAIA Doctoral School: May 16, 2018.
Master (M1 or M2) projects
Oliver Kaltz and I are looking for M1 or M2 MSc students. Possible projects focus on eco-evolutionary dynamics in fragmented landscapes. Using both theoretical and/or experimental evolution approaches, the aim of the projects is to investigate the joint effects of environmental forcing (disturbance) and biotic forcing (parasites, predators, competitors) on demographic dynamics and epidemiology in structured populations, and the consequences for the evolution of dispersal traits and the traits involved biotic interactions (resistance, virulence). Understanding these relationships can provide important insight in the evolutionary processes determining the geographic species ranges, especially in the light of global climate change.
