Student and postdoctoral opportunities

There are many opportunities for graduate studies and postdoctoral training in my laboratory group. 

If the range of research looks interesting, and our setting at Florida International University, Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden, and abroad looks appealing, contact me.
Not all opportunities and projects are posted yet, so contacting me is the best way to get an inside scoop. 

FIU grants MSC and PhDs in Biological Sciences:

One of our most exciting opportunities is a joint PhD program with Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden and University of Miami.  Fairchild is a leading center for tropical plant conservation, and the joint program presents a range of unique opportunities.

We have a range of funding opportunities for students, ranging from external fellowships to teaching assistanceships.  Students must identify a faculty sponsor before applying, and meet the program requirements for the MSC and PhD programs.  Rebecca Vega Thurber has a nice description of her expectations for student applicants - our philosophies are similar.

Part of the fit for students and postdoctoral scholars with my laboratory is interacting with other laboratory groups.  Check out the other faculty at FIU
