prospective students

Prospective undergraduates

email Lauren with (i) a few sentences describing the kinds of questions or topics you are interested in, (ii) the area(s) of research in our lab that you want to learn more about, (iii) a list of some of the relevant courses you have taken to date, (iv) your professional/post-graduate plans (if you have them - this allows me to consider how a rotation with our lab could best serve your career goals).

For current undergrads, check out the the different options for credited involvement in our lab group within the EEB department [here].

Prospective graduate students

 I *am* recruiting PhD/MS students this cycle (Fall 2024 application cycle to start Fall 2025).


Check out the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at UA and see if it's a place you might want to be. Then email Lauren with some info about your academic background (where are you coming from?) and some of your research ideas/interests. We can set up a time to chat to see if we might be a good fit for each other. 

*****Prospective students interested in applying to start in Fall 2025 should contact me and follow the detailed application instructions (check out the FAQ) [here] and plan to apply by early December of this year (2024).


Prospective postdocs

I am currently recruiting a three-year, fully-funded postdoc to work with me on a few projects related to the mammalian gut microbiome (more specifics when we chat). If you're interested, please email me with your CV and some of your interests and we can set up a time to talk.

I am also always happy to sponsor independent postdoc fellowship applications (e.g., NSF and/or NIH). There are also a number of internal postdoc opportunities at UA (e.g., One Health postdoc) Please contact me if you are interested in writing one of these together.
