I am always looking to work with bright, motivated students. Students can conduct research in my lab for class credit or for a modest stipend or can volunteer. I expect students to help develop their projects, and these projects can be carried out individually or collaboratively. Regardless of project, I encourage students to assist with field work (bird banding and surveys) and to learn the basic principles of statistical analysis. My goal is to develop projects that lead to poster or oral presentations at national conferences and, ultimately, to publications in peer-reviewed journals.
If you are interested in joining the lab and are eager to work and learn, contact me to discuss research opportunities. Some ongoing projects with student researchers (see People) are highlighted in Collins Lab. I am also open to other questions and study systems.
