“GEE offers a dynamic and supportive environment in which to hone your research vision and build a team. The breadth of expertise in evolutionary biology across the GEE centres offers plenty of opportunities for collaborations, with the existing fellows network a great source of advice and shared experience."
"GEE set me up with a low teaching and admin load, enabling me to focus on building a research team and publication record, which was essential for securing additional funding and a proleptic appointment."
"The best thing about being a Fellow in GEE is the diversity of research and expertise that you are surrounded by. This opens avenues for interesting collaborations and means you regularly learn about areas of biology that are outside your own field."
