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.


We anticipate the possibility of adding one postdoctoral scholar to our lab in 2022. This position will require a strong background in quantitative analysis, particularly modern statistics, as well as programming and (ideally) machine learning and/or bioacoustics. An advertisement for the position will be posted next year, but please feel free to contact Justin in the mean time if you are interested.

Graduate Students

We are planning to recruit one graduate student to join our lab in Fall 2022 (applications accepted in Fall 2021). Please check the Department of Biological Sciences website in Fall 2021 for information about this opening and how to apply. Aside from this opening, if you are interested in working with our lab and have potential sources of funding identified (such as an NSF GRFP), please get in touch with Justin.

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).
