Postdoctoral
There are no postdoctoral opportunities available at this time. Please check back later.

Graduate
I can supervise students in the Environmental Studies Program or the Economics Program.  The application deadlines for this cycle have now passed for Environmental Studies for all applicants, and Economics for international applicants (ECON domestic applicants have until January 10, 2019). Please check back next fall for information on opportunities available next cycle.

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). I am also open to advising honors projects. Please email me if interested. 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.
