Applicants for UVM’s PhD Program
Dr. Hughes Lansing will be accepting applications for graduate students in the Fall 2023 application cycle (for matriculation in Fall 2024) and will accept a student pending final funding availability.
Please feel welcome to reach out to Dr. Hughes Lansing and ask questions about research opportunities in the lab and how they fit with your research interests.
As a graduate student mentor, I follow the junior colleague model, where my students are full collaborators in my work. Graduate students have extensive opportunities and support for presentations and publications as well as receiving training in grantsmanship and interdisciplinary research in health sciences. I meet with my graduate mentees frequently and provide individualized supervision and training plans. I also focus on developing methods and writing skills, especially for students interested in pursuing research-emphasis careers. See the FAQs document (above) to learn more about applying to our lab and visit the UVM graduate programs website for general program information.

We are looking for students who are excellent workers, independent, and able to take direction well. We will provide all the necessary training so no previous research experience is required, although experience is certainly welcomed. For students who evidence strong commitment and interest, there are opportunities for working on publications or presentations based on lab and independent research projects.
