Join the Lab!

Interested in joining the lab? We are always interested in hearing from prospective graduate students and postdocs whose interests overlap with our lab’s research. Undergraduate students interested in independent research are also welcome to get in touch. If you’re interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Justin.


There is currently an opening for a department-level postdoc fellow for postdocs whose research bridges the interests of two faculty members in ecology and evolution in our department – more information can be found here. We do not currently have any openings for postdoc positions in the lab, but a position may be available with a start date in 2020. Please get in touch with Justin, particularly if you are interested in working on the theoretical aspects of our research and have a strong mathematical/computational background.

Graduate Students

We do not have any openings for graduate students in the lab at this time, although we may have a position opening for a start in fall 2020. This position would be targeted towards an incoming student with formal training in math or computer science (undergraduate major or minor, or equivalent) and interest and/or prior experience in ecology.

Undergraduate Students

Motivated undergraduate students may work with Justin on a project of mutual interest. Suitable topics include questions related to spatial ecology and conservation, either from a field or a model-driven perspective. The majority of our research is quantitative in nature, so undergraduates should ideally have  programming experience with Python, R, C, or a similar language (or the ability and willingness to learn these).
