Welcome

The Evolution & Ecology Research Centre was established in 2007 with the generous support of the University of New South Wales. It builds on a desire to provide a cohesive and cooperative environment for the University's effort in evolution and ecology research and research training.

Evolution is responsible for all of the biological diversity in the natural world and the fossil record. Evolution occurs within the context of ecological interactions between an organism and its environment. The most exciting research in whole organism biology is at the intersection of how organisms interact with their biological and physical environment (Ecology) and the way in which these interactions effect adaptive change across generations (Evolutionary Biology).

The Evolution & Ecology Research Centre draws together the diverse strengths of over fifty academic staff and independent research fellows, and over sixty postgraduate students from the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences, School of Mathematics and Statistics, School of Economics and Humanities & Languages at UNSW in Sydney

The Centre's purpose is to build capacity for and quality of research, including postgraduate research and supervision. To do so, we provide seed funding for innovative new research collaborations, recognize excellence in research, learning and supervision, run an innovative Graduate Program in Evolution & Ecology, and engage in public outreach relating to evolution and ecology.

I trust you find this website interesting and that it stimulates you to find out more about us.

Graduate Program in Evolution & Ecology

 

The graduate program of the Evolution & Ecology Research Centre (E&ERC) at UNSW aims to foster excellence in postgraduate research and supervision, and the development of skills to better equip research students for careers in science. Students are offered support for their own research projects and a wide-ranging program of activities aimed at developing a broader conceptual understanding of the discipline and enhanced research skills. Excellence in postgraduate research is recognised by annual prizes for theses, publications, presentations and other research activities.
