Interested in joining the Zambrano Lab?
Prospective graduate students
The School of Biological Sciences offers both MS and PhD degrees in Plant Biology and Biology. Prospective students should read more about the department for more details about the graduate program.
I encourage applications from students who share my research interests, but I am also open to explore new topics in the realm of forest and plant functional ecology.
If interested in applying, please send me an email with a brief description of the type of research that you would like to pursue in my lab and your qualifications; Also, attach a copy of your CV.
Most students are often funded through research/teaching assistantships. Graduate student applicants are also encouraged to apply for external fellowships, which usually provide one with a stipend and research expense allowance. Here are some potential funding avenues:
- American Association of University Women
- NSF Graduate Fellowships
- National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (DOD)
- Hertz Foundation
- Ford Foundation
- USDA graduate fellowship
