We are excited to hear from interested high school students. Feel free to send us an email about potential open positions in the lab.
Opportunities for undergraduate students
There are often opportunities for pursing undergraduate research in the lab. In addition, Case Western Reserve University has a number of programs that support undergraduate research. Interested students should send via email a brief interest letter containing a statement of research interests and any relevant experience (e.g. through coursework or other research positions).
Opportunities for graduate students
The Department of Biology at Case Western Reserve University is an excellent place to earn a graduate degree. Our department continues to grow, and we are an interactive, engaging and collegial group. We have several nearby research facilities for conducting local field experiments and observational studies including the University Farm, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and the Holden Arboretum. A number of additional universities in the area including John Carroll University, Kent State University and Ohio State University provide further opportunities for collaboration. And Cleveland is an exciting place to live—a fantastic music, food, and art scene!
For those interested in pursuing graduate research in my lab, please email me with an interest letter containing a brief description of your research interests,prior research experience,and statement of why you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree. For guidance on how to structure the interest letter, there are a number of excellent resources online including the blogpost here.
For those interested in pursuing post-doctoral research in my lab, please email me with a copy of your CV and a brief description of your research plan. Pending congruence and complementarity of research interests and approaches, I would be happy to explore possible external funding opportunities.
