The Donohue Lab
We are always very happy to consider applications from excellent and enthusiastic PhD and postdoctoral researchers.
Although we have no fully-funded positions available at present, there are several competitive Irish and European awards available (e.g. IRC, Royal Society-SFI Research Fellowships and Marie Curie) that allow people to pursue a PhD or post-doctoral research through scholarships and fellowships. If you feel that you may be competitive enough to get one of these and are interested in the research that we do, then we would love to hear from you!
Some of the research areas that we are particularly interested in at the moment include (but are not limited to):
- the factors that regulate relationships among different components of ecological stability
- how does foodweb structure interact with environmental variability in regulating ecological stability?
- what factors determine the ability of ecosystems to resist and recover from disturbances?
- how does ecological stability relate to ecosystem functioning?
