Information for prospective post-docs, post-graduate and honours students
I am interested in talking with prospective undergraduate students who would like to gain research experience (ie, volunteering) or transition to an Honours degree. Undergraduates that obtained a third year average of 75% and above are encouraged to apply.
I am also interested in talking with prospective PhD students (nationals or internationals). If you would like to join the Sleep Ecophysiology Group, then please send me an e-mail with a cover letter detailing your interests, experience and career aspirations along with an up-to-date CV.
Lastly, I am very happy to talk with prospective post-doctoral research fellows, but only if you have secured, or will apply, for funding (eg, ARC DECRA).
