Join us!

We welcome motivated postdocs, JRFs, and graduate students who want to join us. If you are absolutely committed to research in evolution or ecology, read on!

Please read and think about our research before you approach me for a position. I strongly recommend reading some of our papers so that you know what kind of work we do. If you find our research interesting, please email me with your CV and a brief description of your research interests. I cannot respond to emails that do not include this information.

Summer interns: We expect to mentor 2-3 summer interns in 2021, including 1-2 students from the Indian Academy summer research fellowship program.

MSc project interns: We are no longer accepting applications for MSc thesis project students in the first half of 2021. If you are interested in doing your thesis project with us in the second half of 2021, please write in.

PhD applicants: PhD students either join the lab through the joint NCBS admissions, or register externally with UGC/CSIR/equivalent fellowships. If you fall in either category and are interested in our work, please email me. I would like to recruit 1-2 PhD students in 2021-2022.

Postdoc applicants: Currently we do not have a funded postdoctoral position, but we welcome applications from motivated and independent postdocs. Even if your research interests are not perfectly matched with ongoing projects in the lab, I would be happy to discuss potential projects and funding possibilities.

JRFs/Project assistants: We would like to recruit a project assistant with prior training in molecular biology or microbiology, and an interest in evolution. Please contact me, even if you do not have a UGC/CSIR/equivalent fellowship.
