We are looking for students and postdocs to join the Physiological Ecology Lab in the Department of Botany and Biodiversity Research Centre at the University of British Columbia. There are currently openings for both graduate students and postdocs.

We aim to maintain a group with diverse skill sets to address cutting edge questions in physiological ecology and global change biology. We’re looking for researchers with strong interests in combining empirical, experimental, and/or theoretical approaches to understand plant-environment interactions across multiple levels of biological organization, from cells to ecosystems.

Many funding opportunities are available. Students are generally supported through a combination of lab research grants, teaching assistantships, and studentships (e.g. NSERC CGS-M and GGS-D, Vanier CGS, Killam, and the China Scholarship Council). Postdocs can be supported through lab research grants or postdoctoral fellowships (e.g. Banting, Killam, NSERC, or the UBC Biodiversity Fellowships).

If you are interested in joining the group, let’s talk more about your research interests and why Vancouver is the best place in the world to do ecology! Send an email to sean.michaletz@ubc.ca. Graduate program applications are due on February 1st for a September start date, and on July 1st for a January start date.
