Graduate Student Opportunities

I am always looking for qualified graduate students whose topical, theoretical, and regional research interests intersect with my own. If you are  interested in joining the Biocultural Anthropology Lab, please contact me at  cmeehan@wsu.edu.

I welcome applications from individuals who plan to enter with their own research plans. However, I also have a few specific opportunities and projects available for highly-motivated students interested in the following areas:

Interdisciplinary Human Microbiome Research

I am looking for graduate students interested in topics associated with the intersection of evolutionary theory, behavior, and the human microbiome. I have a project available for qualified students.

Childhood Research

I am looking for graduate students interested topics associated with the evolution of human childhood, cooperative breeding, and social and physical development from a biocultural perspective. I have a project available for a qualified student.

Maternal Reproductive Strategy Research

I am looking for a graduate student interested in maternal reproductive strategies, life history theory, and time allocation.  I have a project available for a qualified student.
