Prospective Students

If you are interested in joining our lab please contact me directly via email ([email protected]). Please include your CV and a letter describing your research interests in any communication. I advise students through both the Department of Zoology and Physiology and the Program in Ecology at the University of Wyoming.

Graduate student tuition and stipend will be fully funded through a combination of grants and teaching assistantships. The GRE is not required for admission to our graduate program. For funded positions, the department has rolling admissions, meaning there are no formal application deadlines. I advertise all available positions on the American Fisheries Society, Texas A and M, and other job boards.

I strongly encourage applications from diverse, non-traditional students. Prior experience in aquatic ecology and fisheries is preferred, but not required. I aim to create an inclusive lab environment that prioritizes respect and communication with an emphasis on sustainable work habitats.
