We seek to recruit an MSc student to undertake a research project which examines the links between the economic costs of alien species and their biodiversity impacts.


We are seeking a student with a strong interest in the conservation of biodiversity and in particular, biological invasions. You should be studying for your MSc and be able to come to Paris-Saclay to work here full-time for six-months (or longer). You should have experience in data-mining, R coding and statistical analyses. You should also have good written communication skills and be able to work independently and as part of a team.


Working on this project you will further develop your research skills, including approaches to literature reviews, management of large datasets and statistical analysis using R.


We welcome applications from minority backgrounds under-represented in STEM subjects.


Start date: immediately (upon your availability and subject to visa application requirements)

Duration: 6-12 months
