We often have undergraduate research assistantship appointments available in the lab and will usually make it possible for students with funding from UROP to work in the lab to gain research experience. You should feel free to contact Jason Neff, Dan Fernandez or any of the other lab members if you are interested in one of these positions.
We especially encourage students to pursue honors thesis with work in our lab. We have many different research projects and Colorado is a remarkable place for environmental studies so you should contact Jason Neff if you are interested in an honors thesis.
Most graduate positions in Geology and Environmental Studies are funded by research assistantships (grant supported) and there are relatively few teaching assistantships.
There are a number of nationally supported graduate fellowships including those from the NSF and the EPA. I strongly encourage prospective Ph.D. students to apply for these fellowships as these types of fellowships greatly improve your chances of finding a position in the lab of your choice. For 2009/2010, there is space in my laboratory for MS or PhD research and there may be funding for positions. If you have questions about applying for a fellowship to work in our laboratory, feel free to contact Jason Neff.
I always welcome postdoctoral applicants interested in a host laboratory for externally funded postdocs. Examples of potential programs include the NOAA postdoctoral program (http://www.vsp.ucar.edu/cgc/opportunities.html), the USDA AFRI Postdoc program (http://www.csrees.usda.gov/funding/afri/afri.html) and the NSF OPP postdoctoral program (http://www.nsf.gov/od/opp/post_doc/pd_resources.jsp).
