The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology offers Ph.D. degrees through the Graduate Field of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Students pursue topics across a broad span of interconnected fields, including biogeochemistry and ecosystem ecology, community and population biology, chemical ecology, evolutionary patterns and processes, organismal biology, and sustainability and conservation science. Students also engage in discipline-based education research. We pride ourselves in nurturing students who pursue their own innovative, question-driven research while contributing to our inclusive and diverse intellectual and social community. We especially encourage applications from people of all races, ethnicities, gender identities, (dis)abilities, nationalities and backgrounds. For interested prospective students, every Spring, EEB along with the Department of Entomology and the School of Integrative Plant Science hosts the annual Diversity Preview Weekend.
If you have any questions about the graduate program, feel free to contact our faculty Director of Graduate Studies, Alex Flecker, or our Graduate Field Assistant, Patty Jordan.
