Current Graduate Student Opportunities


PhD fellowship is available to students interested in joining our group (Application due date January 15, 2013)




Thanks for your interest in graduate degree opportunities in my lab.  I generally do not accept students until I am able to secure funding to support their graduate degree program.  This allows students to focus on their education and not worry about focusing on funding.  A full package of support will include a stipend, tuition, and health insurance. When I do have assistantships available I will advertise them on this page, AFS, Texas A&M job board and other outlets. I encourage highly motivated students to seek fellowship opportunities from NSF, EPA, NERRS and other programs to support your graduate students. If you have received a fellowship and feel that our research interests overlap feel free to contact me. Note that UF does have a limited number of highly competitive fellowships that are available on the graduate school web page.  There are very few TA positions available for graduate students in WEC and this is not likely a viable path to fund your graduate degree program.  For students interested in quantitative fisheries I encourage you to apply to the NOAA-RTR program at UF.
