Postdoctoral researchers and visiting scientists:

Please get in touch if you are interested in collaboratively developing a proposal for a research grant or fellowship. There are many opportunities out there, such as the Smith Fellowship for postdocs and Fulbright Scholars for international collaborators. Writing a proposal and funding your postdoctoral research is a fantastic way to increase your competitiveness on the job market!

Undergraduate students:

One of the most under-utilized aspects of undergraduate education at a top-tier research university like UW is taking advantage of the opportunity to do…. research! Yet, participating in mentored research as an undergrad is one of the absolute best ways to launch your career and life in directions you never dreamed possible. If you are interested in forest ecology and would like to learn about ways to join our lab group for undergraduate research experience, please contact Dr. Harvey ( If you are an undergrad in SEFS, check out the Senior Capstone as a one possibility.
