(wanting to do a PhD or MSc)
TFEL is looking to recruit new graduate students who are keen to work on topics relating to coral-reef fish ecology. Please read and consider the following recommendations, then contact Alastair Harborne with an initial enquiry.
Read about the research in the lab and have a look at some of the recent publications to make sure they are consistent with your interests
Try to suggest some general research topics that you might be interested in working on - these don't need to detailed, but are more useful than saying you "want to work on coral reefs"
Please send a CV documenting your qualifications and research experience
I value research experience, even if it isn't in coral reef ecology - try to gain research experience wherever possible
Please be aware that FIU does not provide TA funding to MSc students. Therefore, unless Alastair is advertising an MSc position supported by funds from a successful grant application, it is virtually impossible to fund MSc students. Consequently, you will need to identify your own funding if you wish to undertake a MSc with TFEL
TFEL welcomes approaches from post-graduate researchers who are keen to work on topics relating to coral-reef fish ecology. Funding is always limited for post-graduates, so please consider potential funding sources such as the NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowships. Please contact Alastair Harborne with an initial enquiry.
