PROSPECTIVE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

Research in the C-HaWQ lab can be both field and lab intensive. Therefore, we are always looking for highly motivated undergraduate volunteers and paid technicians to help with our research while gaining valuable experience for a future career or graduate school. Texas A&M-CC has several programs to fund undergraduate researchers (McNair Scholars, S.U.R.E.) that allow students to conduct their own research while also working on C-HaWQ projects. To contact Dr. Conkle about working in the lab, please fill out the form below and indicate that you are a Texas A&M-CC undergrad looking for research opportunities. We are actively recruiting undergraduate researchers for spring and/or fall 2015.

PROSPECTIVE PH.D. & MASTER'S STUDENTS

We have closed our graduate student search through the spring of 2017. If you are interested in studing the role of aquatic pollution on ecosystem and public health consider working with us. We recruit students with a strong background in chemistry and interests and some experience in analytical and environmental chemistry. Potential students must be computer savy and open to learning modern data processing techniques, such as modeling, statistical computing, data processing and spatial analysis by using programs such as R, ArcGIS and Matlab. All students must be self-motivated and detail-orientated. In other words, you can't be like the guy in the picture below.

Before contacting me, I highly recommend reading my colleague's, Dr. Lee Smee's, webpage (scroll to the bottom of the page) for some great advice on what to look when applying to graduate school and what to expect once you begin your degree. In addition to considering the information Dr. Smee discusses regarding the lab you join, all C-HaWQ students (undergrads and grads) and post-docs are required to complete an annual Individual Development Plan (IDP). This IDP requires lab members to think about their future and establish a dialogue with Dr. Conkle regarding career goals. This allows Dr. Conkle, within his capabilities, to taylor each lab member's experiences and opportunities in the C-HaWQ lab to their career aspirations, helping to increase their chances of success. For students that are interested in learning more about how to prepare for your future once you are in graduate school, please view the keynote presentation Dr. Conkle gave at the February 2014 Graduate Student Symposium at LUMCON titled: Adventures in Academia: Things you should know but have probably never been told. If you are still interested in learning more, please fill out the contact form below indicating whether your are interested in a Master's or Ph.D. degree.
