So you want to join the lab? First read a few of our recent papers – or if that is too painful then skim through the last few issues of decision point. If that doesn’t put you off then send Hugh (h.possingham@uq.edu.au) your CV and a note about what you would like to do and why you think our lab is the best place to do that. Our group is very big, probably bigger than any other conservation research in the world, and we are part of two huge centres. That has advantages and disadvantages. For example we do a lot of work in groups, but the amount of one-on-one time Hugh has for any individual in the lab is limited. This is probably good as he doesn’t know much and everyone else in the lab is much nicer.
