Prospective students

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 that they might want to pursue. Our lab has been up and starting since September 2014 and will likely seek another graduate student for fall 2016. 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.

Our current team of dedicated summer undergraduate students are: Elizabeth Karamavros, Wes Huffman, Megan Barry, and Rafeed Hussain.

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