Join Us

We are always looking for new lab members (BS or MS seeking) or collaborators. If we have specific projects for which we are hiring, they will be posted below. 

If you are interested in joining the Ranglack Lab, please compose a personalized email describing, 1) why you want to go to graduate school to study wildlife ecology, 2) why you want to join my lab in particular, 3) what kinds of questions in wildlife ecology you are most interested in and why, and 4) your qualifications, including field experience, GPA, and GRE scores. Please also include your CV, and contact information for 3 references.

While I aim to support my students financially, learning how to pursue independent funding is an important skill. I expect my students to apply for external funding, even if TA and/or RA funding is available for the project. If you are interested in joining the lab, familiarize yourself with possible sources of funding, such as the NSF GRFP and EPA STAR fellowships.

If  you do not receive a reply within 2 weeks, please follow up with another email. Thanks!
