Opportunities

The SEE lab is no longer recruiting for funded positions. We can help you apply for funding with no obligation to continue without funding. We have opportunities to extend many of the projects on the home page as well as some new projects and potentially projects of your own design. Please set up a meeting with Dr. Jones to explore the possibilities.

Graduate Fellowships

While all PhD positions in Dr. Jones’ lab are funded, for your professional development, it is suggested that you apply for at least one fellowship per year until you have one. Among things this helps prepare you for:

  • Rejection, “Look myself in the mirror, I say we gon’ win
    Knock me down nine times but I get up ten” – Cardi B
  • Acceptance, “Meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same” – Rudyard Kipling
  • Asking for money, “I’m going to get a scholarship to…” Lin-Manuel Miranda
  • Bragging about yourself, “Who you know fresher than Hov” – Jay Z
  • Advocating for yourself, “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul” – William Earnest Henly
  • Your PhD proposal and dissertation, “Staring at the blank page before you// open up the dirty window// Let the sun illuminate the words that you cannot find…no one else// Can speak the words on your lips” – Natasha Bedingfield

For undergrads interested in applying to Northeastern for Graduate School, Dr. Jones will gladly help as a mentor on one of these fellowships.
