Graduate students

I am looking for self-motivated students starting in fall 2020. Research questions in our group are all, either directly or indirectly, related to spatial ecology in freshwater ecosystems. If you feel excited to explain complex systems with “simple” rules, you may be a good fit in my lab. The most tough part of research is to develop questions – I therefore advise students to create their own questions. I believe this helps become an independent researcher.


Postdoc position is available: please see here. Inquires should be directed to a_terui at

I welcome inquiries about postdoctoral projects in our research group. If our research program is a good fit for your interests, please email me (a_terui at with your CV and a short summary of your research interests (1-2 pages). We can develop collaborative projects through postdoctoral fellowships, such as Smith Fellowship and JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship.
