PhD scholarships ×2: Evolutionary responses to environmental change

Two fully-funded PhD stipends are available for a suitably qualified student interested in working on the evolutionary responses to environmental change in my lab.

The project will be supervised by Associate Professor Carla Sgrò, School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.

The key questions that drive our research program are:

  1. How does the environment influence the expression of genetic variation that underpins adaptation?
  2. How important is sex-specific adaptation to evolutionary responses to environmental change? (in collaboration with Dr Tim Connallon)

Successful candidates will be fully funded for 3.5 years (the length of a PhD in Australia), for full-time research, and with no teaching requirements. The annual stipend is approximately $25,000 AUD tax-free (equivalent to approximately $33,000 before tax) with additional expenses for research, coursework, and conference attendance (once per year) also covered.

To apply, please send a CV and academic transcript to

Applicants must hold a Bachelor’s degree with first-class honours, or a master’s degree.

Review of applications will begin immediately, and short-listed candidates will be contacted to set up interviews.
