Our research themes are broad spanning ecological and evolutionary research in aquatic and terrestrial systems meaning that there is potential for a range of post-doc projects depending on expertise of the candidate. Pending funding we hire post-doctoral research fellows (monitor this site for opportunities as they arise), and there are several schemes available to facilitate both short-term and long-term post-docs in our group. These include:

Alfred Deakin Fellowships (2 years)

Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Research Award (3 year fellowship)

Fulbright Fellowships (3 to 10 month fellowships)

Interested young researchers are encouraged to contact Adam and Craig to discuss opportunities for working in our group. We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic researchers of all ages and genders.


We have a productive team of PhD students working on a broad range of research topics. Refer to our current PhD programs to get a feel for the types of projects our students focus on. We are always keen to hear from interested potential domestic and international PhD students, and encourage interested students to approach us with their own research ideas.

Please contact Adam or Craig to discuss project ideas and the application process.
