Faculty Recruiting Graduate Students

We have openings in both Biological Sciences and Microbiology.

Our Biological Sciences MS and PhD degrees include specializations in one of three emphasis areas:

1) Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
2) Cell and Developmental Biology
3) Comparative Organismal Biology

We have faculty who have active research programs in each of these emphasis areas.

The following faculty are recruiting new Biological Science graduate students:

Baeza, Antonio          - Behavioral & Evolutionary Biology/Molecular Phylogenetics
Bain, Lisa                  - Mechanisms of Arsenic Toxicity
Baldwin, William        - Toxicology, Mitochondrial Function, and Autism
Barrett, Kyle              - Wetland Ecology and Conservation Biology
Bielenberg, Douglas   - Plant-environment Interactions
Blob, Rick                  - Evolutionary Morphology and Biomechanics
