There are several ways that people get involved with the Hadly Lab. This page provides information on:

Lab Meetings

The Hadly Lab holds weekly lab meetings where members get feedback on their research, host presentations from visiting scholars, and more. We often welcome interested non-members to sit in on our lab meetings. You are encourage to reach out to Dr. Hadly if you are interested in joining us. 

Undergraduate Opportunities

We are always looking for motivated undergraduate students to join our lab! If you are a current Stanford undergraduate student who is interested in participating in our research or is looking for a senior thesis lab, please contact Dr. Hadly or another current lab member whose research interests you. You may be able to get course credits for your research with the lab. If you are interested in learning more about current research in the lab, but do not necessarily wish to join a project, feel free to attend our lab meetings. 

Research in the Hadly Lab depends on the interests of the current members. However, past projects have included genetic analysis of past and modern animals, food web modeling, non-invasive biodiversity monitoring, animal bone identification, and tracking toxins in our local environment. Gained skills might include: working with specimens to obtain genetic or morphological data, computer analyses of DNA sequences, coding in R, scientific writing, and/or field work. None of these skills are required for you to join our research - just a passion for learning! Take a look at the bios of current lab members to get a better idea of our open projects.
