Opportunities for undergraduate
Students interested in the research described elsewhere
on this site, or in related projects, are invited to contact
me. There are several avenues through which students can work in
my lab, including the Howard
Hughes Medical Institute summer fellowship program (for first- or
second-year students) and by conducting honors
thesis research under my supervision. Funds may be available for
summer research students who do not fall into either of these two categories.
Undergraduate students who work in my lab often publish
their findings in peer-reviewed journals and/or travel to national or
international meetings to present their results. Papers, oral presentations
or poster presentations co-authored by students are listed on the Research page of this site.
Biology students and faculty celebrate the
completion of senior thesis projects.
Opportunities for graduate students
Graduate students are eligible to work in my lab through
the University of Massachusetts’ Ph.D./M.S. program in Organismic
and Evolutionary Biology, of which I am a
member. Interested candidates are asked to contact me in the fall to
inquire if funding is available for the following academic year. Click

graduate students. Click here

Animal Behavior Society.
Potential postdoctoral associates are eligible to compete
for the Darwin
Fellow award. Collaborative grant writing
is also a possibility. Send me a description of your research interests
and a CV if you wish to discuss postdoctoral possibilities.
