Prospective Students


I welcome inquiries from potential graduate students who are motivated, have prior research experience, and are interested in working at the interface between ecosystem and microbial ecology. If you are interested in applying to work with me, please send your CV and a brief description of your background and research experience and interests. While I typically support students on my research grants, I strongly encourage students to seek external sources of funding from programs such as:

• U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Science to Achieve Results (STAR) Program: http://www.epa.gov/ncer/fellow/

• National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program: http://www.nsfgrfp.org/

• NSF Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants Program: http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5234
