Watts Lab Join the lab

Prospective graduate students

I encourage prospective graduate students (MS or PhD) to get in touch with me sometime in the fall. Applications to the Graduate School are due in early January. I expect that students in the lab will pursue research related to one or more of the areas of focus within the lab (e.g., seasonality, social behavior, facultative migration, environmental/behavioral endocrinology). But students will be encouraged to develop research projects of their own design and to take the research in new directions. If you are interested in joining the lab or would like to learn more, please send me (heather.watts [AT] wsu [DOT] edu) an introductory email with (i) a description of your research interests and career goals, as well as past research experience, and (ii) a curriculum vitae that includes GPA and GRE scores (if you have them).

Prospective undergraduate students

If you think might be interested in participating in research in the lab, I encourage you to read about our research on this website and then send me an email (heather.watts [AT] wsu [DOT] edu) to discuss opportunities. It will be most useful if you can tell me a bit about your interests and career goals and why you are interested in working in our lab.

Potential postdocs

I don’t currently have any funded openings for postdocs in the lab. However, if you are interested in putting together a proposal/fellowship application to fund postdoctoral research, I encourage you to contact me to discuss ideas.
