Graduate students: I am always considering curious, motivated, and hardworking Master’s and Ph.D. students for work on evolutionary morphology and biomechanics in frogs (and maybe other organisms). Oklahoma is a fantastic place to work with amphibians and reptiles, and Stillwater is a nice place to call home during graduate school.
If you think you’d like to work with me, please send me an introductory email that includes some project ideas, your CV, and a recent transcript. Then we can discuss options to come and work in the lab. At OSU the application date is somewhat flexible but the end of January is the standard deadline. That said, I usually start considering students in the early fall.
Post-doctoral researchers: I currently do not have funding for postdocs in the lab. However, please contact me if you are interested and we can discuss options for finding you funding, such as through collaborative grant proposals and independent postdoctoral fellowships.
Undergraduate students: I am always considering adding undergraduate students to the lab. Yet whether I accept new students will depend on the availability of space – if there are no ongoing projects that would work well for a new student, it’s difficult. If you are interested in what we do (see here) and want to learn about opportunities, please contact me by email or stop by my office. Note that students interested in enrolling for 4700 research credits MUST contact me within the first two weeks of classes (in any given semester).
