The Behavioural Ecology Lab (BEL) welcomes applications from bright and enthusiastic people who share our
passion for behavioural ecology. We encourage applications from people in any field of science and engineering
who are interested in our work. The ability to code is a bonus.
Postdoctoral positions: We will be happy to host postdoctoral fellows who have their own fellowships (I
can help you draft a project proposal and find funding opportunities).
IISER Mohali also hosts a postdoctoral programme. You can read more about it
here. Note: This position is currently filled.
Ph.D. positions: We are looking for PhD students who have a specific interest in ecology, evolution
or ethology. To secure a Ph.D. position, you will have to apply through the IISER Mohali Ph.D. programme
(check institute website for announcement). You need to have cleared a national level entrance test (such
as CSIR/UGC NET or GATE) or have a DST-INSPIRE fellowship to apply to IISER-M.
M.S. Thesis students: If you wish to do your MS thesis in BEL please write to me in detail about your
interest. BEL has hosted several external Masters thesis students in the past.
Interns: You can intern at BEL (typically two months) as a summer intern through different summer
programmes (IISERM, JNCASR or IAS). You are also welcome to intern in lab/field as a volunteer any time
(fellowship and accommodation unavailable for volunteers).
JRF/Project Assistants: Currently there are no positions available. If you have your own fellowship and
are interested in our work, please write to me.
