We have two graduate positions focused on developing mechanistic
models that relate thermal responses to short term population dynamics
(transients). Our lab uses large datasets, computational, statistical
and mathematical approaches to answer questions about ectothermic
invasive species, species at risk and ecosystem engineers. We are
particularly interested in the role of temperature extremes, variance
and autocorrelation in determining risks of invasive, extinction and
Positions to begin January 2022, but a remote start is possible
depending on travel restrictions at that time. We provide four years
of funding for students in a PhD program.
Please send an inquiry email providing an unofficial transcript, a
