I welcome inquiries from prospective master and doctoral students throughout the year. If you are interested in working with The Sharma Forestry & Ecology Lab, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and include your CV and statements on the following two:
1: What current scientific endeavors excite you?
Demonstrating your best writing skills, explain your interests and how they align with (or complement or add another dimension to) what The Sharma Lab does. It will be helpful (but not necessary) if you can find two journal articles addressing research topics that excite you and spark your curiosity.
2: Academic preparation and why The Sharma Forestry & Ecology Lab?
If you are offered a position in my lab and you are free to choose a thesis/dissertation research topic, what would that be? How does your academic history (education, research, and teaching experiences) thus far has prepared you for undertaking this research topic at the Sharma Lab.
Also check out the AU College of Forestry, Wildlife, and Environment's web Page for information on the graduate programs and application procedures and deadlines. I encourage prospective students to start a conversation with me as soon as possible.
Thanks for considering my lab.
