Preparing for field work

I am always seeking motivated students, including potential both graduate students and undergraduates, to join the research group.  Students in the Stigall Lab are a group of highly motivated, hard working and talented paleontologists who meet deadlines, conduct leading-edge research, and pursue world-class research questions.

Graduate funding is available through Teaching and Research Assistantships funded by the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of Tennessee or external funding agencies.  Admission deadlines are January 1st for Fall semester admission and October 15th for Spring semester admission.  Most students join during Fall semester, but a limited number of spaces may be available for Spring semester admission.

Interested students should email Dr. Stigall and include a statement of their research interests and suitability for the research group, undergraduate or MS GPA, and any relevant research experience.
