Join Us!

Integrating a diverse set of perspectives into our work is important to develop a more comprehensive understanding of freshwater science. We embrace our lab members’ differences in gender, color, disability, ethnicity, age, family or marital status, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, ability, political affiliation, race, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, veteran status, and other characteristics. We are excited to welcome new members into our team! Please see our statement of our lab culture here.

I will try to post funded positions to work in the lab on this page. However, I am always interested in speaking with people interested in joining the team. Please feel free to contact me following these instructions.

If you are interested in an undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral position in the lab, please follow these instructions.

Please visit the Odum School of Ecology, the ICON Program, and the UGA Graduate School sites for the most updated information.

When Carla Atkinson and Krista Capps reflected on graduate school, one of the things they lamented was not having the opportunity to really understand how other freshwater labs functioned. Therefore, during a research trip to Mexico, they came up with the idea of a laboratory exchange program–The ATKAPPS Exchange. During the exchange, members of the Atkinson Lab of the University of Alabama and the Capps Lab of the University of Georgia explore what it is like to be in an aquatic ecology laboratory at a different institution. We share our research questions, challenges, and triumphs, and we have the opportunity to get feedback on our research from a diverse scientific audience.  The exchange is a time for a celebration of freshwater ecology and an exploration of what it means to be a freshwater scientist in the southeast. Roll Dawgs!
