Thanks for your interest in the Johnson Lab

We are always interested in finding exceptional and highly motivated students to join our team. Students in my lab employ a diverse range of approaches, including laboratory experiments, field research, and modeling, to address broad questions in ecology. Because much of our work is collaborative, students should be able to work smoothly in a group dynamic. Students interested in joining the Johnson Lab for Undergraduate, Master's- or Ph.D-level research should contact Dr. Johnson directly with a letter of interest.

Please include in your letter relevant information about yourself, such as research background, undergraduate GPA, GRE scores, and why you are interested in joining our lab specifically. Applicants should have a 3.3 GPA or greater and are encouraged to apply for graduate fellowships prior to submitting their application to CU (but certainly not required). Examples include those offered by the National Science Foundation ( and the Environmental Protection Agency ( Submission deadlines for these opportunities are typically in October and November of each year.

We look forward to hearing from you!
