Graduate Students

I will be recruiting graduate students to begin in the 2024-2025 academic year.

I take my students through the (amazing) Graduate Group in Ecology. Check out their website to learn more about how to apply as well as the holistic review process used to evaluate applications. Applications will be due in early December.

As the website notes, it is important to contact prospective faculty members via email before applying.  Feel free to email me ( with a short cover letter and C.V., if you are interested in joining the lab.  If I think my lab could be a good fit for you, then we can set up a time for a short conversation for you to learn more about the lab and for me to learn more about you.


Feel free to contact me if you are interested in doing a postdoc in the Karp Lab. I am happy to support applications to a variety of fellowships, including the Smith Fellowship, the Ford Foundation Fellowship Program, the NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, the USDA NIFA Postdoctoral Program, the UC President’s Fellowship Program, and others! I will also post any funded opportunities here as they become available.
