Join the Lab

Honours research

Two general types of Honours project are possible:

  • Analysis of geographically variable natural selection and evolutionary constraints in Australian insect species (co-supervised with Dr. Carla Sgro)
  • Projects by negotiation. These include a range of theoretical or empirically oriented projects that span interests within the lab.

For additional information, please contact tim.connallon@monash.edu.


Graduate research (Masters and PhD projects)

Fully funded positions are available for motivated and creative graduate students. Some potential projects topics include (but are not limited to):

  • The evolution of geographically variable in sexual dimorphism (co-supervised by Dr. Carla Sgrò)
  • The mutational spectrum of sex-specific variation (co-supervised by Dr. Damian Dowling)
  • Sex chromosome evolution
  • Assorted topics in evolutionary theory

Postdoctoral research

Funding is currently available for postdoctoral scholars whose general research interests and skills are complementary to ours. To discuss potential research projects, please send a brief statement of research interests and a current CV to tim.connallon@monash.edu.
