JOIN THE GOSWAMI LAB!
If you are interested in a postdoctoral position or fellowship in association with the Goswami lab, please contact Prof. Goswami. We have successfully obtained funding via the Marie Curie Actions, Daphne Jackson Trust, Leverhulme Trust, NERC, NSF, and ERC and are happy to develop projects in collaboration on a broad range of topics spanning macroevolution, evo-devo, and modularity.
There are currently 2 Advertised PhD studentship opportunities based in or in association with the Goswami Lab, but we welcome any students interested in macroevolution and morphology to get in contact! Additional projects will be posted over the coming months.
1) Macroevolution, function, and modularity of the vertebrate jaw: a 3D perspective. Co-supervised by Laura Porro, UCL. This PhD studentship is available for students currently enrolled in the London NERC DTP and will be based at the NHM. Details at https://london-nerc-dtp.org/2018/09/17/macroevolution-function-and-modularity-of-the-vertebrate-jaw-a-3d-perspective/
2) Developmental modularity and integration in evolution of avian cranial diversity. Co-supervised by Arkhat Abzhanov. This PhD studentship is available for students applying to the Imperial College Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) DTP and will be split between the NHM and Imperial's Silwood Park Campus.

The Natural History Museum is associated with several doctoral training programmes through NERC. Some of these programmes involve applying to a particular project (such as Imperial, Southampton, and Oxford) and others have students select a project after starting the programme (such as UCL, option 1 above). Potential UK/EU doctoral students should apply via the London NERC DTP or one of the other NHM-related NERC DTPs.
Students should also contact Prof. Goswami directly about potential projects and funding if they are not eligible for NERC funding.
