Department of Biological Sciences - Westoby Lab

Opportunities to join the lab

[19 July 2015: the opportunity described below has now been resolved and is no longer available, sorry]


Westoby comparative ecology lab will consider appointing a 1-year fulltime postdoc beginning August 2015. This limited-term opportunity arises because a lab member is leaving for a position in UK. Appointees must have entitlement to be employed in Australia -- it will not be possible to arrange immigration or visas for this opportunity.


One project possibility involves comparing phosphorus use across plant species. People may also propose other projects, and we would consider them seriously if persuaded they were interesting to have in the lab.


This is not a position with a formal application process via HR, but expressions of interest will be sincerely and respectfully considered. Criteria are research talent and effectiveness, plus congenial contributions to the life of the lab. Please send CV and expression of interest to Search will remain open until decision is made. (Which does mean that early expressions of interest are rather more likely to be successful.)
