I am always on the lookout foroutstanding scholars interested in earning a M.S. or Ph.D. However, my ability to take on new students is heavily dependent on timing and funding. I typically only accept new students if a teaching and/or research assistantship (TA or RA) is in place to support them for the duration of their degree. When I have funding available, I advertise on this website, on social mediaand on wildlife job boards.
Prospective MS and PhD students with their own research ideas should consider applying for a Graduate Research Fellowship through the National Science Foundation (applications are due each Fall). These fellowships are awarded to the student and can be used at any institution.
Before contacting me, please carefully consider how your research interests overlap with my own. If you feel you are a good fit for the lab, you may email a CV and brief cover letter describing your research interests and why you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree to me.
