Undergraduate/High school Student Training
A number of undergraduate students conduct research in our lab. These students either
work directly with me or with one of my graduate students.
I am interested in working with highly motivated undergraudate and graduate students.
Given that my research interests are quite broad, you would have the opportunity
to work on a variety of questions in my lab. Although the vast majority of research
in my lab centers on mammals in Western North America, I am not taxonomically limited
Undergraduate and Masters level students typically work on projects directly
related to my ongoing research but I expect PhD students to develop their own, independent
line of research. In terms of funding projects, there is a very limited number of
RA or TA positions in our Department so I encourage PhD students to apply for pre-doctoral
fellowships through the National Science Foundation, Howard Hughes or Ford. Students
at any level will be expected to write grants in support of their research.
receive a great deal of interaction from me but I expect them to be highly motivated,
self-driven individuals. See what some of my current students are working on and
feel free to contact them or me directly. If you are interested in joining our lab,
please send me a CV, a statement of your interests, future goals, and how you see
yourself fitting into the lab. If you have questions concerning the grad school
application itself, please see the Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences
Department website for the M.S. program and the Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation
Biology website for the Ph.D. program.
