Prospective graduate students: Dr. Barak advises MS and PhD students through the Program in Plant Biology and Conservation - a joint program between Northwestern University and Chicago Botanic Garden. Unfortunately, I do not anticipate accepting new graduate students for the 2023/2024 academic year. Students interested in the program should see the PBC Faculty page here. 

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.
