Student Opportunities

The Team Aquatic Virus is always looking for excited, engaged and enthusiastic undergraduate and graduate researchers to join the lab. Navigate through our Current Projects page to find information on the types of research we perform, and if that excites you, find out here how you can join the lab!

Undergraduate Students

The team engages students in Biology, Animal Sciences, and Environmental Science and Sustainability majors (and possibly others, too!) through research-for-credit (i.e. BioG2990/4990). Each year the team receives many more applicants than we can accommodate. We usually recruit students through participation in class (BioMI 3500 / EAS 3555 – Biological Oceanography), so if you’re interested in working in the lab then it’s a good idea to take this class! Summer interns normally come from Cornell and are recruited through the class as well.

Graduate Students

Graduate students in the Team Aquatic Virus come through Cornell’s graduate programs in Microbiology, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, and Natural Resources. If you’re interested in joining the lab, but do not carry your own fellowship support please contact the PI about available funding or where to find support.


Postdocs may find support for their work in the Team Aquatic Virus through several competitive channels. If you are interested in joining the team, contact the PI about potential funding sources.
