Prospective graduate students: The lab will be accepting MS and PhD students through the Program in Plant Biology and Conservation - a joint program between Northwestern University and Chicago Botanic Garden, starting for Fall 2020. Interested students that want to study seed biology, plant community ecology and/or social science, in the context of conservation and restoration should reach out to rbarak [at]

Postdocs: I would be happy to work with students to develop applications to postdoc fellowships though programs like the Smith Fellows or NSF biology postdocs 

Undergraduates: Undergraduates at Northwestern looking to work together as part of an independent study or URG should reach out. 

Other undergraduates can look into REU and other internships at Chicago Botanic Garden here, or reach out for more info.
