I will not likely be accepting students for the Fall of 2020.
Thank you for your interest in the Levin Conservation Science Lab for conducting your graduate studies at the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, University of Washington.
I am always on the look-out for sharp, motivated, and hard-working students who have a passion for conservation. Hopefully you have spent the time perusing my research interests and read a couple of my recent publications. From this you will notice that my research interests focus on issues related to interdisciplinary conservation with a slight marine bias. Don’t like salt water? Well, the fact is you can work on any number of projects in our group.
By applying to work with me you will have the opportunity to join a dynamic lab filled with a great group of students and staff working together as a cohesive unit. Quite simply, we play hard and work even harder!
Still interested in joining the Levin Conservation Science Lab? Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include the following information: (1) curriculum vitaé (or résumé), (2) copies of transcripts, (3) summary of research experience, and (4) statement of research interests. I hope to hear from you.
What should you do and what are your chances?
What should you expect from me as an advisor?
As an advisor it is my responsibility to provide you with the resources and professional connections (or at least point you in the right direction) needed to ensure that you meet your career goals. I recognize that the needs of graduate students are not all the same. Some students prefer hands on supervision, others prefer no supervision, while still others (and I would bet, most students) fall somewhere between these two extremes. For this reason, I do not supervise all graduate students the same way. Together we will find the right balance. At the end of the day, I strive to make you a complete conservation scientist with the essential skills required for a successful and rewarding career in academia, government, nonprofit, public sector or wherever you want to be.
