I plan to accept new graduate student(s) to start in August 2024. Please see the links below for useful information.
Information on graduate programs in Biology and Marine Biology at UNCW can be found here. Follow the links on the left for MS and PhD programs, and also check out the FAQs and deadlines.
The Disease Ecology lab is located at UNCW's Center for Marine Science (CMS). Read about this amazing facility here.
Good advice on getting into grad school can be found here. This is a highly competitive process, and successful candidates tend to 1) get in touch early, usually before February for fall admission, 2) have significant research experience, often in a disease ecology/parasitology lab, 3) write statements of interest that explicitly state why they want to join the Disease Ecology lab and/or what types of questions or study systems interest them, and 4) have stellar letters of recommendation. I generally accept ~one student/year.
Undergraduate students: Please get in touch about DIS opportunities in the lab!
