The Evolutionary Ecology cluster in the Zoology Department has received a
major grant from the National Science Foundation to fund six (6) new
Ph.D. students in Ecology/Evolution/Animal Behavior. These students will
start the program in Fall, 1995 and be funded for five years. The
stipend is $14,000/year, with full tuition paid, plus a stipend for
travel and supplies. The Evolutionary Ecology cluster also has a $1.5
million grant to support research which can be used to assist graduate
students. Students who receive a GRT must be US citizens or residents.
Students who receive one of the Training Grants must conduct a research
project in either
use molecular techniques in some area of ecology-evolution-or animal
Every graduate student in the program is required to take courses and
other training to learn modern molecular techniques as applied to studies
in population biology. This training is provided in the clusterÕs
Molecular Ecology and Evolution Laboratory that is funded by NSF.
The Graduate Program especially is interested in applications from women
or members of minority groups not well represented in science.
