The MacroBiodiversity Lab (MBL) spans a diversity of areas in evolutionary biology and ecology, with a primary focus on the study of selection as a driver of adaptations and extinctions of biodiversity. MBL integrative approach expands into numerous theoretical and technical areas across space and time, ranging from population to global-scale and from ecological to evolutionary timescales. The lab main focus is on adaptation, life history evolution, macroecology and the impact of climate change on biodiversity. Members of MBL work primarily on animal models, mostly vertebrates. MBL is led by Daniel Pincheira-Donoso.
Two PhD opportunities fully funded by NERC-DTP and DfE to work on amphibian declines and macroecology - apply by 22 January 2020 here, and by 16 December 2019 here.
