The C·I·B produces graduates who are sought after for their knowledge, creative and critical thinking and for their expertise in the fields of biodiversity science and invasion biology. We encourage co-supervision and interdisciplinary work and welcome enquiries from academics in this regard.


The C·I·B no longer offers NRF bursaries. Instead, the NRF manages such bursaries directly via the NRF online system and Any applications made through the NRF by prospective students should be for free-standing bursaries and will not be linked to the C·I·B. Affiliation with the C·I·B is not funding-linked, if you want your invasion project to be C·I·B linked, please approach your prospective supervisor.

We encourage students to pursue bursary opportunities offered by their home university or prospective institution, other government or reputable bursary funder.

Post-doctoral funding opportunities are available through our core team members; enquiries in this regard should be directed at the relevant core team member.
