Field Assistant Position: I am looking for a field assistant to work in my lab at the Centre for Ecological Sciences at IISc in Bangalore. We study ecological interactions between species, and the consequences of these interactions at the population and community levels, mostly using insects and plants. See http://ces.iisc.ac.in/new/?q=user/435 for more details about our research.
Saskya studies population, community and behavioral ecology of interacting species in fragmented and changing landscapes. We are excited to have her here and look forward to her stint at CES.
