Thanks to all who applied to do a M.S. or Ph.D. with me in 2018.
The Couvillon lab at Virginia Tech will be looking for an additional Ph.D. student to start in 2019 and an additional M.S. student to start in 2021. Both students should have a keen interest in honey bee foraging ecology and native bee abundance and diversity. Special consideration will be given to students with expertise and/or interest in native bee taxonomy and identification.
Please check back in autumn 2018 for the PhD student announcement.
Lastly, if you are a potential Ph.D. student and would like to apply for your own funding, such as through the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program, then please contact me so we can begin discussing your project.
Undergraduate student research opportunities:
I am always happy to discuss research opportunities for motivated undergraduate students. Sometimes we are able to pay on a per hour basis, and other times, students volunteer to work in the lab to gain the experience. Please contact me to discuss opportunities for you in the lab or field.
Postdoctoral research opportunities
Please contact me if you are interested in joining the lab. Although I do not currently have funds for a postdoctoral fellow, I'm happy to discuss with you potential proposals for a grant to get you here.
