Graduate Position - UC Irvine

GRADUATE POSITIONS IN THE DEPARTMENT OF ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, IRVINE (posted Oct 23, 2012)

The Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at UC Irvine
(UCI) welcomes applications from highly-motivated students to join our PhD
program in the Fall of 2013.  The department (http://ecoevo.bio.uci.edu/)
consists of a large and dynamic faculty spanning a diverse array of research
areas including informal research groups in Ecology and Evolutionary
Ecology, Evolutionary Genetics, and Comparative Physiology
(http://compphys.bio.uci.edu/Bio_Sci/Home.html).

The Ecology and Evolutionary Ecology group (http://plants.bio.uci.edu/¬) is
a diverse set of faculty working on plants, animals, and microbes in the
areas of evolutionary ecology, conservation biology, biogeography,
functional ecology, population and community ecology, biogeochemistry and
ecosystem ecology.  There is a focus on integrating modeling, theory, and
experimentation as well as developing collaborations among the Evolutionary
Genetics and Comparative Physiology groups.  Cross campus connections with
the Department of Earth System Science are especially strong.  Exceptional
facilities and resources for carrying out research or integrating research
with decision makers are available through the UC Natural Reserve System
(nrs.ucop.edu), the New Steele-Burn and Anza Borrego Desert Research Center
(nrs.ucop.edu/reserves/anza-borrego/anza-borrego.htm), and the Center for
Environmental Biology (www.uciceb.com).
The Evolutionary Genetics group (http://evogen.bio.uci.edu/¬) features a
diverse faculty working in both model and non-model systems.  Specific areas
of research include experimental evolution, genomics (experimental and
computational), molecular evolution, population genetics, and quantitative
genetics. There are strong connections with other programs on campus,
particularly the UCI Center for Complex Biological Systems
(http://ccbs.uci.edu) and the School of Information and Computer Science
(http://www.ics.uci.edu).

For full consideration, complete applications should be received by January
1, 2013.  We strongly encourage prospective applicants to contact faculty
members as soon as possible to discuss their research interests.
Financial support for graduate students comes from a variety of sources,
including teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and fellowships.
Outstanding applicants will be considered for the Francisco J. Ayala
Fellowship http://www.bio.uci.edu/grad_students/Ayala_Fellowship.html
