Prospective Graduate Students

Potential Ph.D. students interested in studying species' responses to climate change or species invasions are encouraged to contact Dov Sax. We anticipate accepting a student to begin in the Fall of 2016.

The process of applying to a PhD program in the fields of ecology, evolution and conservation is fundamentally different than the process in many other academic disciplines. If you haven't had specific advice from a faculty member about how the process works then I recommend that you have a look at this informative blog post by a colleague:


Prospective Postdocs

Postdoctoral researchers interested in joining the lab are encouraged to contact Dov Sax. Three funding opportunities currently exist:

1. Voss Postdoctoral Fellowships are exclusively for applicants who wish to work with one or more faculty mentors at Brown University.


2. The Nature Conservancy NatureNet Fellowships are available to applicants to work with environmental faculty at Brown, as well as at handful of other participating universities.


3. The Sax Lab has funding beginning in summer 2016 for a postdoc with expertise in species distribution modeling. A formal application process will begin later this fall, but concact us now if you might be interested in this opportunity.
