Prospective Students

There are opportunities for two types of graduate study in my lab –

  • a Ph.D. program, in either the Division of Marine Science and Conservationnand,
  • a professional Master’s program in Coastal Environmental Management.

The CEM program is designed to train professionals for a career in management and conservation. The Ph.D. program is designed to train students for academic careers in science. In general, I prefer doctoral students that have already completed a graduate degree, and those that have funding or clearly fit with an ongoing funded project are easiest to accommodate.

I also advise Coastal Environmental Management (CEM) degree students each year. If you are an incoming CEM/MEM student interested in our work or are considering doing your PhD at Duke Marine Lab in our research areas, please contact me : david.johnston@duke.edu
