Seeking PhD Student in the Davies lab Fall 2021!

The Davies lab is recruiting a prospective Ph.D. student focused on fundamental questions about evolutionary and ecological processes, who is specifically interested in addressing these questions in marine invertebrates. Our lab is strongly focused on coral ecology, evolution and symbiosis, however students interested in a diversity of topics are welcome. We encourage members from diverse backgrounds to apply, as we strive to promote the voices of underrepresented groups in ecology and evolution. The PhD student would be accepted through the Ecology, Behavior and Evolution (EBE) Biology graduate program at Boston University.

Please send your current CV and a bit about the science that excites you to daviessw [at] by September 15, 2020.

The Davies Lab owes much of its success to the diligent efforts of our undergraduate researchers.

Research is both a challenging and rewarding process. Participating at the undergraduate level fosters valuable skills that can benefit you professionally, even if you do not pursue a research career.

The Davies Lab emphasizes investment in young undergraduates who can stay with the lab for multiple semesters. This approach allows students to “graduate” from introductory tasks to more complex, original, and independent work over time.

Unfortunately, we are not currently accepting any new undergraduate researchers, however please check back as our needs are always changing!
