Our lab is keen to recruit passionate students interested in insect (more generally animal) behaviour, ecology, and evolution. Research in our group mainly focuses (but not restricted to) on one of the following fields:
- the function and evolution of animal colouration and related behaviours
- anti-predator defence
- predator-prey interactions
- evolutionary processes that generate diversity and maintain variation in nature
- responses of animals to climate change
Prospective graduate students
The main requirements for pursuing MSc or PhD degrees (and having a fun and productive time) are enthusiasm for studying animals and good English communication skills. The MSc and PhD opportunities depend on the lab's current funding status. Part-time students are conditionally allowed if there are overlaps in research interests. If you are interested, please contact me at the below e-mail address.
★★★ The applicants should contact me at least before either the end of August for the spring semester or February for the fall semester. Earlier contact is preferred. The official (university) admission process starts in early April and October. You also need a TEPS or TOEFL score by then (see https://admission.snu.ac.kr/graduate/general/notice).
Main opportunities for undergraduates
- Research assistant during semesters or summer vacation
- Undergraduate research program for SNU students (https://liberaledu.snu.ac.kr/node/51)
A few funding programs exist for national postdocs mainly through the National Research Foundation of Korea. For national postdocs, 세종과학펠로우십 (https://www.nrf.re.kr/biz/info/info/view?menu_no=378&biz_no=475) and 박사후국내연수 (www.nrf.re.kr/biz/info/notice/list?menu_no=378&biz_no=352) are available. If you are an international postdoc and interested in our lab, please contact me first for the current opportunities.
