Opportunities for Prospective Students and Postdocs

I am looking for motivated, creative, and independent individuals. The work we do on pelagic ecology and the development of new techniques for studying marine animals is highly inter-disciplinary and quantitative, and so a background in mathematics, physics, and programming is a plus. Much of our work is field-based and there is ample opportunity to go to sea, so a sense of adventure and an interest in ocean-going research is also desirable (though not essential).

If you are interested in the research described on this site and in joining my lab please feel free to contact me with a description of your background and interests along with a CV. A great deal of information on educational programs is also available at the WHOI Academic Programs Office website.

Undergraduate Students
Undergrads interested in conducting summer research projects in the lab should apply to the WHOI Summer Student Fellowship Program or the Woods Hole Partnership Educational Program. Both of these programs provide financial support and housing, and have application deadlines in mid-February. Students whose home institutions support externships during the school year are also encouraged to get in touch.

Graduate Students
Students interested in joining the lab for graduate studies can apply to the MIT-WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography. I also encourage any potential applicants to investigate additional sources of funding, such as the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

I welcome postdoctoral applicants to contact me about current opportunities and funding in the lab. Each year WHOI also awards a number of 18-month postdoctoral scholarships that provide postdocs with a great deal of flexibility to pursue their research interests.
