If you are interested in joining the Ecological Data Science lab at USC, please read the mentoring philosophy/ lab expectations.


I seek motivated team members with a keen interest in ecology and strong quantitative/ modeling skills.


If you think we can be a good fit, please send Melissa:

  • A C.V.

  • A brief statement of which types of research questions you are interested in.

  • Undergrad and PhD students: Transcripts (unofficial is fine)

PhD Students: Prospective graduate students can apply to join the lab through the Ph.D. program in Marine and Environmental Biology (MEB)
