Postdoctoral
I am hiring a postdoctoral researcher in quantitative/mathematical sustainability science (posting and application instructions* here). Start date is flexible, but no earlier than January 1, 2019, and no later than September 1, 2019. The position is open until filled, with first consideration given to all applications received by October 15, 2018. Salary is $60,000, commensurate with experience.

*Please note: you only need to have your Ph.D. in hand by the time you start (i.e., no later than Sept. 2019). If you do not have your Ph.D. by the application deadline (Oct. 15, 2018), but are planning to have it by Sept. 2019, you are welcome to apply. In this case, please upload proof of whatever your highest degree is (e.g., BS or MS) for the 'proof of degree' part of the application. 

Graduate
I will be recruiting at least one Ph.D. student this cycle, to start in Fall 2019, through the Environmental Studies Program. I can also supervise graduate students in the Economics Program

Undergraduate
There are not currently any funded undergraduate opportunities in the lab, but I hope to have some soon, so please check back later. I am also happy to support fellowship applications for funding undergraduate research (see below). There are no volunteer opportunities in the lab, as I strongly believe researchers should be paid for their work.

Fellowships
I am always open to supporting external fellowship applications from motivated prospective postdocs and students (graduate or undergraduate) who are interested in joining the lab. Please email me if you are interested in preparing a proposal to work in the lab.

Contact Tips
When emailing me about opportunities in the lab, please include:
1. A brief description of your background and broader career objective(s).
2. A short pitch (a couple sentences) of an idea you would like to work on here.*
3. Why you think the lab/CU would be a good fit.
4. Your current CV.

*I won't consider your pitch an ironclad commitment to that idea. You are welcome to revise it or change it later. In fact, this is very likely to happen, in my experience. The point of the pitch is mostly to see how you form research questions, and what your broad interests might be.
