Join the Lab

The Davies Lab owes much of its success to the diligent efforts of our undergraduate researchers.

Research is both a challenging and rewarding process. Participating at the undergraduate level fosters valuable skills that can benefit you professionally, even if you do not pursue a research career.

The Davies Lab emphasizes investment in young undergraduates who can stay with the lab for multiple semesters. This approach allows students to “graduate” from introductory tasks to more complex, original, and independent work over time.

We are currently seeking an undergraduate student who is interested in working with the coral’s algal symbiont. This work will involve culturing the algae and performing experiments on their growth in response to different temperature regimes. Please reach out to Dr. Davies ( to inquire.
