Opportunities in the Lab


I expect that students in my lab will hold common interests in ecology and conservation, with strong appreciation for integrating other fields, such as evolutionary biology and statistics, into their research and development as biologists. I will consider advising students on a wide range of topics, including research on landscape ecology, animal behavior, population dynamics, quantitative modeling, avian ecology, and conservation.


If you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree in the Fletcher Lab, we highly recommend reading publications from the lab to determine if and how our work interests you.

Want research experience? Contact us!

Our lab often has openings for motivated undergraduate students that want to gain valuable research experience, including both field experience and computer experience (e.g., GIS skills). We expect undergraduates to be very committed to their work in the lab. If you are interested in gaining research experience relevant to the work in our lab, please send Dr. Fletcher a resume, 2-3 names of references, your current GPA, and a brief statement of why you would like to work in the Fletcher lab.

We are currently not expecting to recruit new graduate students in Fall 2022/Spring 2023

We are always interested in hearing from potential graduate students that are motivated to work in ecology and conservation. However, we currently do not anticipate having new funding support in the next year for incoming graduate student positions.

Undergraduate REU available!

We are looking for a motivated undergraduate student to work on a collaborative project on habitat loss, fragmentation, and the role of the 'matrix'.
