How to apply?

If you are interested in theoretical approaches to community ecology and biogeography, want to work in a dynamic department, and are not afraid of inter-disciplinary approaches, then we offer a research environment where you will be able to pursue your scientific interests and learn new skills.

Before you apply, please have a look at some of our publications. The one with a little star next to them are the most representative of our core scientific interests. Knowledge of mathematics or programming is always a good thing, but being genuinely willing to learn is far more important. Remember that we are an ecology lab – we love using and building tools, but the questions we ask matter more.

To apply, send Timothée (timothee.poisot@umontreal.ca) a single PDF with your CV, a one-page summary of your career aspirations and outline of your motivation and past research experience, and contact information of two references. </div>

Funded opportunities

We currently do not have already-funded opportunities. See Other opportunities (just below) if you are ready to look for your own funding.

Other opportunities

The MITACS-Globalink program offers up to 7000 $ for 12 to 24 months to students from a French university (M2 or PhD). We are able to accommodate one visitor for a project on modelling, using advanced research computing, or any theoretical research on food webs / ecological networks.

If you have your own funding, or are interested in looking for external funding, you are invited to get in touch, and we can work on defining a research project that matches your interests. </div>
