TweetThis! Ph.D. position in mosquito ecology Spring 2010 - Univ. of Southern Mississippi

Ph.D. position in mosquito ecology Spring 2010

Deadline for applications is 15 September 2009

Applicants are invited for one highly motivated Ph.D. student (start date Jan. 2010) in the lab of Donald Yee. This position will specifically focus on the ecology of mosquitoes and will contribute to on-going projects in the lab. Past research topics have emphasized larval competition, invasion ecology, species diversity, and life-history trade-offs. We use a combination of field sampling and field and laboratory experiments to understand what regulates populations and communities of mosquitoes in nature. We also use mosquitoes to answer basic ecological questions. Other research topics may be considered, although mosquitoes communities or populations should be a focus. More information concerning the Yee lab can be found here: http://www.usm.edu/biology/faculty/Faculty_Profile_Donald_Yee.htm

General requirements: Masters degree or equivalent experience. Prior field experience and coursework in ecology, entomology, and statistics is preferred. Preference will be given to applicants who have had experience with mosquitoes. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Funding: will be available through a combination of teaching and research assistantships. I also expect students to pursue other funding sources (NSF DDIG, EPA STAR, Sigma Xi, etc.). Full tuition grants are provided. Basic and major medical health coverage is provided to fulltime graduate students in good standing academically. Support for students will be provided to participate in scientific meetings.

Entrance requirements: Although the Department of Biological Sciences does not have a minimum set of scores to be eligible for entrance into the graduate program, potential applicants should expect to have a minimum GPA of 3.00 and have taken the GRE before application (verbal + quantitative scores should exceed 1000).

USM: The University of Southern Mississippi, a Carnegie Research High Activity institution with 15,000 students, is located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, near the Gulf Coast and has abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation. Hattiesburg is the medical, commercial, and cultural center of southern Mississippi and is ranked in the top five small metropolitan areas in the United States. The Department of Biological Sciences is comprised of about 30 faculty and offers baccalaureate, Master of Science, and Ph.D. degrees. Over 70 graduate students currently pursue masters and doctoral degrees. Further information about the department may be found at: http://www.usm.edu/biology/.
