PhD & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES: SOCIAL INSECT COLLECTIVE BEHAVIOUR, MACQUARIE & MONASH, 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 https://tinyurl.com/yxuagwol).
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.
