A range of projects are available including topics on molecular phylogenetics, GIS mapping, taxonomy, population modelling, social science, history, mathematical ecology, and evolutionary biology. Submitted topics in line with EDRR’s goals will also be considered.

Requirements: Candidates must be pro-active, enthusiastic, and interested in doing excellent research that can make a difference.
