Positionality statement: in the Gibert Lab we understand and recognize that systemic discrimination, racism, sexism, xenophobia and other forms of oppression have been –and still are– responsible for the lack of access and opportunities to members of marginalized, underserved, and underrepresented communities, regardless of how smart, talented, hard-working, and all-around awesome they are. We do not accept these or any forms of oppression and discrimination, and we commit to fight them in all their forms, both within and outside our lab. We are committed to building a diverse and supportive community where people from all genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds and national origins can feel empowered, comfortable, safe and happy. By joining the lab you are accepting to actively engage in keeping the Gibert Lab a safe place.
Join the lab!
For graduate students: we are always on the lookout for passionate, driven, independent and enthusiastic potential graduate students that may be interested in joining the Gibert Lab at Duke Biology. If you're looking for an opportunity to address fundamental and applied questions about predator-prey interactions and evolution within food webs, from individuals to ecosystems, using a mixture of theoretical and empirical tools, this might just be your place!
If you're interested in talking about possibilities or just want to chat about any of the above, shoot us an email (jean.gibert at duke.edu). In your email, please provide a CV and describe your research interests and experience so we can have a better idea as to how to answer any questions you may have.
The Gibert Lab accepts students through both the Biology Program and the University Program in Ecology.
For undergraduate students: joining the lab will allow you to gain valuable research experience. We understand that you are busy, so we can find a schedule that works for you. No matter who you are, we appreciate you, and we want you to join us.
For high school students: we are always happy to host you in the lab during the summer or during the semester. However, slots fill out quickly, so make sure you contact us as soon as possible to schedule a visit and talk about possibilities. (WILL RESUME AFTER COVID PANDEMIC)
