The Field Station is heavily used by graduate students: work here has produced 146 dissertations and theses since 1970. If you are a graduate student interested in conducting research at the Field Station, please see "Visiting the Station" and fill out the "Request for Permission to Carry Out a Research Project" form.
A number of UWM faculty have active research projects at the Field Station and accept graduate students who conduct their research here. Prospective graduate students should visit our "research page" for help in finding an advisor with an ongoing research project at the Field Station. Please contact Jim Reinartz or Gretchen Meyer at the Field Station for more information about applying to graduate school at UWM.
The Field Station can support a limited number of UWM graduate students as Project Assistants. We generally employ several students in the summer, and one or two during the academic year. Please contact Jim Reinartz or Gretchen Meyer at the Field Station for more information.
