Frog phylogeography postdoc opportunity at Lingnan University in Hong Kong. Two years, and it involves helping build an amphibian collection (so lots of field work!).

I should clarify that I was referring to thinking about establishing a lab population of these geckos. Just one benefit of which would be the ability to provide with specimens for brain scanning. But for me this is four years off at least.
