PhD student opportunities
I plan to accept one or two PhD students to join my lab in Fall 2019. Research in our lab focuses on shallow water oceanography, environmental fluid mechanics, and physical-biological interactions. Students with a background in engineering, applied math, physics, and environmental science are particularly encouraged to apply. Please email me for further information about current projects, funding, and our program.
The oceanographic community at Duke spans multiple departments and disciplines. Please see our university-wide website, Oceans@Duke, for further details about faculty, research, and courses.
To receive full consideration, applications for entry to our program are due in December 2018.
Application information from the Graduate School at Duke can be found at this link.
Undergraduate research opportunities
During the academic year, we usually have openings for independent studies in the lab which can be taken for course credit. In some cases these projects can turn into an honors thesis to graduate with distinction. Previous undergraduates doing research in my lab have gone on to top PhD programs including MIT, Stanford, Harvard, UC Berkeley and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. Please contact me for further information on current projects and opportunities.
Our lab also participates in the Summer REU program at the Duke Marine Lab. This 10-week program runs from 4-June to 10-August 2018, and is open to students from all universities. The REU application deadline is 15-Feb-2018. More information about this program can be found here.
