Join the lab!
I welcome enquiries from enthusiastic and motivated applicants from around the world. If you are interested in joining the lab as an undergraduate or graduate student, post-doc, or visiting researcher/scholar, please contact me.
Undergraduate students: Please contact me to find out about opportunities for independent study and research in the lab.
Postgraduate & PhD students: I seek exceptional students, both academically and personally. Ideal members of the lab have a clear vision of their research goals, are enthusiastic, mature, good communicators, flexible and have a strong background in a relevant discipline. Find exemplar projects for exemplar PhD study via the following links: polar geomicrobiology and deep biosphere.
Post-docs: I am willing to work with dedicated candidates to develop fellowship and grant proposals that would fund their work in the lab. Potential postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to contact me a year before their desired start-date, to allow time to develop these proposals.
Earth and environmental science, like other scientific disciplines, is and has been dominated by white faces and voices. Black scientists are subjected to racial bias while working at field sites, at meetings, in labs and classrooms, and in life. This must stop. Integrating a diverse set of experiences is critical for a comprehensive understanding of science. Discrimination and injustice, racially or otherwise, is not welcome and will not be tolerated in this space.
