University, Nanning, China
The Plant Ecophysiology and Evolution
Group, Forest Ecology Group and Forest Dynamic Research Lab at Guangxi University
(Nanning, China) are seeking highly motivated
and productive International MSc and PhD students to engage in 4-year projects
Plant Physiological Ecology including water relations, or Functional Plant
Anatomy, or Photosynthesis and Photoprotection, supervised by Prof. Kun-Fang
Cao (kunfang.cao from gxu.edu.cn or caokf from xtbg.ac.cn).
Plant Genomics, Molecular Systematics, Biogeography or Taxonomy, supervised by
Associate Prof. Joeri S. Strijk (jsstrijk from gxu.edu.cn).
Ecological Genomics or Conservation Genetics, supervised by Associate Prof.
Alison Wee (alisonwks from gmail.com).
Seed Ecology and Physiology, supervised by Associate Prof. Uromi Goodale
(uromi.goodale from outlook.com).
The International Graduate Program at the College of Forestry offers MSc and PhD Fellowships
for 4-year projects, with complete waivers for tuition fees and housing fees.
Housing will be provided in the International Student dormitories of the campus
in Nanning. The
first year will consist of orientation and study of Chinese language through
courses. The other three years will be filled with fieldwork, professional
courses and the research project.
Project applications are now invited for an
intended starting date of projects in September 2016. The application deadline
is March 31, 2016. Fellowships come with an ample monthly allowance for the
full duration of the project. Applicants with a proven track record of
successful publication in peer-reviewed journals will have an advantage.
Opportunities for the development of
individual research projects as well as collaborative work, exist within our
lab and with external groups. Candidates will be integrated in growing and
multidisciplinary teams of Chinese and foreign researchers, providing a
creative and stimulating research environment, and will work as part of a team
studying the evolution, ecology, distribution and/or ecophysiology of selected taxa
in Asia. Prior knowledge of Chinese is not
mandatory as courses form an integral part of the curriculum, and the working
language in our research groups is English.
All research groups are part of the College of Forestry, under the State Key Laboratory
of Conservation and Utilization of Subtropical Agro-bioresources, which houses
a wide range of laboratories and research teams. We are centrally located on
the large Nanning
city campus, with easy access to on-campus housing and day-to-day facilities for
life on campus. Guangxi University (>25,000 students) in subtropical Nanning is part of the National 211 University Scheme of
China (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_211) and aims to become a major
research hub in Southern China. The city forms
the natural gateway to South-East Asia, with Vietnam
a mere 300kms away and direct international connecting flights available to
most major cities in Asia from the new Nanning International
