Offre de thèse : Social insect collective behavior, Macquarie and Monash Universities, Australia



Positions for research associates and PhD candidates are in an exciting project that studies collective behaviour in social insects.

You will work within a cutting-edge multidisciplinary collaboration of experimental biologists and mathematical computational modellers at Macquarie and Monash Universities, and international partners in a project funded by the Australian Research Council (see


We are seeking applications for:

Research Associate – this requires a highly motivated candidates with field or laboratory experience in animal behaviour, ideally but not necessarily dealing with ants or other social insects.

PhD Candidate – we are looking for a candidate with the same experience as above and broad conceptual interests in biology that will allow them to place their empirical work in a theoretical context. Students in this project will be able to profit from the modelling work being conducted by other specialised team members but will have the opportunity to learn cutting-edge computational modelling techniques, should they wish.


If you are interested in working at the intersection of ecology, behaviour, and complex systems science, in a project that meshes experimental biology and computation science we encourage you to contact us for further discussion.
