JOINING THE WALTER
LAB

The Walter lab explores college science teaching and learning. Our work is an intersection of biology, psychology, sociology, and education.

The first step to joining a research lab is sending a detailed email to the primary investigator (the PI). In this case, you should email Dr. Walter at ewalter@csufresno.edu. Your email should share your career goal and why you want to do research with the lab.

 

You should care about the problems the Walter lab is working to solve if you wish to join the lab. We are not accepting students who wish to do work only for a letter of recommendation.
