Information for prospective students


Undergraduate opportunities:

We regularly have Indiana University undergraduates participate in independent research, as well as work as research assistants on long-term projects initiated by our graduate students or by Drs. West and King.

During the summer months, we will frequently offer summer support to outstanding undergraduates from other schools that are looking for a research experience in animal behavior. We are especially interested in students from small colleges that have not had the opportunity to work in a lab at a research university.

If you are interested, please send an email to with a copy enclosed to explaining why you are interested in the lab. We also need to know something about you.  At a minimum, we need to know what year you are in, if you have had any prior research experience and your major.  We also would want to know whether you are planning to attend graduate school and in what field.
