Prospective Students

Thank you very much for your interest in my lab at the University of Maine’s Darling Marine Center.

Prospective graduate students: I am not actively recruiting additional students through University of Maine’s School of Marine Sciences or the EES Grad Program for Fall 2018 but if you’d like to talk about possible future opportunities, please email me at heather.leslie@maine.edu. Applications are submitted through UMaine’s Graduate School, after we’ve connected by email.

Prospective postdocs: I am recruiting a postdoc to study the ecological and human dimensions of coupled social-ecological systems associated with small scale fisheries. Early career scholars with expertise in the ecological and/or social sciences and a strong commitment to interdisciplinary, engaged scholarship are encouraged to apply. Travel to Mexico and residence in midcoast Maine at the Darling Marine Center is required. Please email heather.leslie@maine.edu for more details. 

Undergraduates: Whether you are a UMaine student or not, consider applying for our Semester by the Sea program, and experiencing marine science in an intimate and exciting environment during the fall semester at the Darling Marine Center. Opportunities for independent research also exist in the summer and fall, particularly through the SEA Fellows Program. Please contact me for details.
