    Graduate assistantships at Univ of S. Florida

    Graduate positions: Graduate opportunities at the
    University of South Florida (Posted 10/29/12)


    The Department of Integrative Biology is accepting applications for students
    to enter their integrative graduate education program in Ecology and
    Evolution, Environmental and Ecological Microbiology or Physiology and
    Morphology (deadline Jan 1 2013, see
    http://biology.usf.edu/ib/grad/admission/). Our department is committed to
    train the next generation of graduate students to prepare them for
    professional success in the fields of biological sciences that mirror our
    faculty's expertise, which emphasizes organismal interactions and
    adaptations to the environment at all scales, from microorganisms to complex
    plants and animals. Our program of graduate study is designed to foster the
    development of technical and analytical skills used in existing and emerging
    fields of discovery. Increasingly, students are given opportunities to
    include an international experience in their research projects and also be
    involved in outreach activities. The research and training ongoing in the
    Department of Integrative Biology contributes to advancements in both basic
    science and applications to real world problems.

    Application files must be complete and received by the Biology Graduate
    Office before January 1, 2013 to be considered for Fall 2013 Teaching
    Positions or the University Graduate Fellowship.

    Students can pursue a M.S. or Ph.D degree in Biology. Each of the degrees
    requires a student to identify an area of concentration. The program offers:
    .       M.S. in Biology, Concentration in Ecology and Evolution (EEV)
    .       M.S. in Biology, Concentration in Environmental and Ecological
    Microbiology (EVM)
    .       M.S. in Biology, Concentration in Physiology and Morphology (PMY)
    .       Ph.D. in Biology, Concentration in Ecology and Evolution (EEV)
    .       Ph.D. in Biology, Concentration in Environmental and Ecological
    Microbiology (EVM)
    .       Ph.D. in Biology, Concentration in Physiology and Morphology (PMY)

    Faculty research interests include: biomechanics and functional morphology;
    ecology (marine and freshwater, conservation, restoration, population,
    community and ecosystem); ecological genetics and epigenetics;
    ecophysiology; ecotoxicology; environmental microbiology; evolution; gene
    transfer; genomics; microbial physiology; research synthesis; and response
    to climate change.
