Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology
PhD Program at Miami University


Student sampling on Antarctica ice photo Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology (EEEB) is a multidisciplinary, interdepartmental program of study and research leading to a Ph.D. degree. Students earn a degree in EEEB but closely interact with one or more departments. Although there is no Master's degree program in EEEB, Miami also has Master's and Ph.D. Programs in Ecology, in which students earn a Certificate in Ecology.

The program provides students with educational experiences that reflect this emphasis, and facilitates collaborations and interactions among students and faculty. All students are supported with teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or fellowships. Miami ecologists also have a NSF-funded Integrated Graduate Education Research and Training Grant (IGERT) to support several Ph.D. students in aquatic ecology.

The program involves several departments and centers, and over 40 participating faculty, and takes advantage of Miami's spirit of collaboration and excellent facilities.

Potential applicants are encouraged to contact faculty to learn more about their research programs.
