Opportunities for Students

My research provides a variety of opportunities for students broadly interested in the history of life at the undergraduate and graduate levels. There are opportunities for students at any level to participate in all of the areas of research described below. You are also welcome to propose your own ideas for research projects. Please contact me if you are interested in pursuing work in paleobiology. Potential graduate students will also need to apply for graduate admission through GES. I am also actively recruiting post-doctoral fellows. Please contact me to discuss funding opportunities if you are interested in post-doctoral research at Stanford.
