What and Who we are looking for?

We are looking for both undergraduate students, graduate students, student workers and interns who enjoy field work and getting dirty, who are hard working and dedicated (because grad school isn't always easy), who enjoy ecosystem ecology, and who are not afraid to ask questions and grow as ecologists. 

Moreover, we are looking for students who have a passion to "do good science." 


Opportunities abound...

Your thesis research can be conducted in the lab, at a local field station,or at field sites from the Everglades to the Texas Gulf Coast.  The opportunities for graduate research funding are at an all time high.  I will do everything I can do to help with the process.

I hesitated to put links to these articles up here, but do feel that in tandem, they offer some useful information and advice to potential students.
