I have a variety of projects that would be excellent capstone research projects or could be done for undergraduate credit hours. Contact me if you are interested and have at least 10 hrs per week to devote to lab work.
Graduate student opportunities
I do not yet know whether I will be recruiting students to begin next Fall, and am not likely to know about grant funding until mid-summer. Motivated, hard-working students who are interested in joining my lab to pursue their graduate studies are encouraged to apply for NSF, NSERC, and other fellowships this Fall (keep an eye out for early deadlines!) and to apply to UW by the January deadline.
Please be sure that you meet all of the admissions requirements of the UW School of Oceanography. When you apply, also send me your CV and an informal statement of your interests and how they apply to my research so that I know to look for your application when it comes in.
I am frequently looking for volunteers to assist with field collections, data entry and analysis, and miscellaneous lab work. If you live in the Seattle area and can be available either on a continuous basis or sporadically at short notice, and are interested in getting experience with zooplankton, please contact me to talk about potential opportunites. Zooplankton identification experience is greatly welcomed!
