Click the links in orange for specific information for undergrads, graduate students, and postdocs

  • Information on opportunities for undergraduates

    Undergraduates who are motivated to gain research experience outside the classroom can find information at the above link.

  • Information for prospective graduate students

    Students in the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Conservation are fully funded (details at the above link), but this means that I recruit/accept students only when I have funding or they have a fellowship, such as the NSF GRFP. I will not be accepting new students until 2026. Please note: Graduate students need a M.S. or equivalent to be admitted to the Ph.D. program.

    If you are interested in talking to me about future opportunities in my research group, send me an email with specific details about what aspects of my research you are interested in (i.e., which of my papers you have read) and what your experience is. Some coursework or experience with modeling and or statistics is usually required.

  • Postdocs

    I do not currently have funding for postdoctoral researchers, although that is always subject to change. I am also happy to discuss opportunities to apply for funding with interested candidates. For example, Virginia Tech has the Presidential Postdoctoral fellowship for individuals within three years of completing their doctorate aimed at supporting fellows from diverse backgrounds. The National Science Foundation has a Ocean Science postdoc fellowship. There are also opportunities for foreign postdocs such as the Smith Fellowships and Fulbright Visiting Scholar Program.
