Prospective Graduate Students

How to Apply

1. I may accept a graduate student for fall 2016. I am especially keen on highly motivated students whose background and interests overlap or complement my research interests. Please email me describing your research interests and future goals, and why you would like to work in my lab before you apply.

2. Apply to the Zoology and Physiology graduate program


Advice for Graduate Students

1. "Some modest advice for graduate students" by Stephens C. Stearns can be viewed here or download the PDF here

2. "On being a successful graduate student in the sciences" by John N. Thompson can be viewed here or download the PDF here
