Joining the Lab

Joining the lab


I am always interested in new people joining the lab. It is best if you contact me directly but below are some available avenues



Potential postdocs can apply via our PERT program. This NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship program trains postdocs not only in research but also teaching. 


Graduate students:

There are two ways to apply to the graduate program in my lab:

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Program (GIDP) in Entomology and Insect Science

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology


Undergraduate students:

I typically have a number of undergrads working in my lab (well over 50 at this point). There are a number of options, and we will tailor which to best suit your needs and the particular project. These options include: for pay, credit, Honor’s Thesis, Senior’s Thesis and as a volunteer (yes, volunteerism still exists).
