The Ph.D. program in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at Texas A&M University is soliciting exceptional applicants for a Fall 2017 start date (deadline January 1, 2017).
As one of the largest and most productive EEB faculties in North America, we offer a world-class training program that incorporates the various fields relevant to EEB, ranging from evolutionary genomics to animal behavior to landscape ecology. Students embark on research with an identified faculty sponsor on arrival, and spend the first academic year taking a sequence of EEB core courses, as well as a between-semester field course in the Sierra Madre.
EEB and TAMU offer ample opportunities for professional development, including weekly EEB seminars and journal club, the semi-annual Open Source for Open Science computational workshops, the annual Ecological Integration Symposium, and the summer graduate field course in Big Bend National Park.
TAMU offers field research opportunities and structured field courses around the world, including the Soltis Center in Costa Rica, the Amazon Field School in Peru, and the CICHAZ research station in central Mexico. Students also have access to field and experimental laboratories across the state of Texas. The TAMU campuses in College Station and Galveston offer state-of-the-art research facilities including core facilities for genomics, microscopy, and stable isotopes; supercomputing and computing cluster facilities; and internationally-renowned biological collections.
College Station/Bryan is a diverse, cosmopolitan college town in the post oak savanna of central/east Texas. The cities of Austin and Houston and their international airports are about 1 ½ hours away.
For full consideration, applications for Fall 2017 should be received by January 1, 2017.
We are committed to building a diverse community and strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals.
