The Gilbert Lab aims to do great science, which means we value a diverse, vibrant, and creative lab group. I strongly encourage prospective applicants from groups under-represented in science to apply for positions in my lab.

Current openings are announced under the Lab News section.

If you are interested in joining my lab, please compose a thoughtful, well-written, and personalized email, and describe why you want to go to graduate school to study wildlife ecology, why you want to join my lab in particular, what kinds of questions in wildlife ecology you are most interested in and why, and your qualifications, including field experience, GPA, and GRE scores. Please also include your CV, and contact information for 3 references.

While I aim to support my students financially, logistically, and in their professional development, learning how to pursue independent funding is a key component of a professional skillset. I expect my students to apply for external funding, even if TA and RA funding is available for the full duration of the project. If you are interested in joining the lab, familiarize yourself with possible sources of funding, such as the NSF GRFP and EPA STAR fellowships.

If after crafting and sending an email to me you do not receive a reply within 2 weeks, please follow up with another email. Thanks!
