*** Update: due to upcoming sabbatical leave, the Baumann Lab can unfortunately not accept students for fall 2023 ***

Prospective graduate students:

I’m open and committed to receive applications from interested, ambitious, and qualified graduate candidates, and may be approached by those wanting to work with me on competitive fellowship applications. Our lab has been up and running since September 2014 and is always evolving in terms of projects and methods. Get to know the research areas first and then contact Dr. Baumann directly.


Volunteering is a great way to get to know the practical, exciting, and mundane aspects of field and experimental biological oceanography. Our experimental season generally starts around April, that’s when a pair of extra hands is often extremely helpful.


All current and former undergraduates can be found under Baumann Lab.
