Research / Station Use Application

  • Complete this form if you are a group leader wishing to host an event at the Station, or a researcher wishing to conduct work here. Only one form per project/activity is needed.
  • This form also lets you request research support.
  • Housing reservations are done separately:
    • Visiting groups (e.g. events, conferences, meetings) will be contacted by someone from MLBS to arrange housing and other logistics.
    • Individual Station users must complete a housing request to secure a reservation following approval of this application.
  • All applications will be reviewed as soon as possible. We will contact you approving the work, or asking more questions. Please contact us any time to follow up.

Research Support Request (optional):
MLBS has some funds to help cover costs of doing research for graduate students and early career faculty. If you wish to be considered for one of these awards please provide a brief budget (e.g. station fees and research expenses) and information on any other current or pending support. Review of applications for support begins March 15.
