Faculty in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences are always looking to recruit students at both the graduate (PhD, Masters) and undergraduate levels. If you are interested in joining a lab, the best thing to do is to contact one or more faculty members directly whose work interests you. For prospective graduate students, our application information page has more information about applying to our graduate program (PhD or Masters). For UM undergrads, our advising page lists faculty who act as undergraduate advisors, who can also help you declare a major in EARTH or find a lab to work in. We look forward to your joining the Earth family!
