Positions available

(August 2020) Three positions are currently open in the IBBL:
– Two PhD positions
– One Research Assistant positions

Two PhD positions available!

Applicants should have a strong background in ecology, entomology or a related field, with previous research and field experience preferred, and with good analytical skills. Students with high motivation to work within tropical Asian regions are particularly encouraged to apply. Successful candidates should be hard-working, critical thinkers and independent (but keen to work with a team of researchers). Applicants should note that to be accepted within the Graduate Program of the University of Hong Kong, demonstration of academic excellence during undergraduate studies (high GPA) is a requirement.

Potential to develop fieldwork in South-East Asia, including within Hong Kong during the PhD program exists. The geographic position and history of Hong Kong provide great opportunities for the study of community ecology, biological invasions and functional diversity in ants.
