Professor Dustin Marshall is seeking two experienced quantitative ecologists to explore the dynamics of biological systems, specifically how size and shape affect the ways resources move through populations and communities.

As a post-doctoral researcher, you will explore how populations and communities change their function as they change in size and shape, using empirical approaches, new theory or ideally a combination of both. The research will be conducted in collaboration with Marshall as part of a major new initiative at Monash University.

As the successful candidate, you will be expected to undertake theoretical research in fundamental ecology or the design and analysis of experiments.

You will further be expected to maintain consistently high research output in the form of quality publications, supervision of students, development and submission of grant proposals to external funding agencies, contribute more generally to communicating the research activities of the group, and participation in appropriate career development activities.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
