Join our lab

The Penick lab is currently recruiting Undergraduate and Masters students to join our research on social insect ecology and evolution. Ongoing projects include research on urban ecology, thermal biology, antimicrobials, and nest architecture.

Potential Undergraduate students – If you have an interest in insects and/or working in urban or forest ecosystems, please send me a brief message describing your background and why you are interested in research in the Penick lab.

Potential Masters students – If you would like to join the lab as a Masters student, please send a brief description of your past research experience (if any) and your future research interests. Guaranteed support for Masters students is provided through teaching assistantships and competitive research support through the Master of Science in Integrative Biology (MSIB) program.

Potential Postdocs – I do not currently have funds to support postdocs, but I would be happy to seek and apply for funding together.
