Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology
PhD Program at Miami University
Applicants must identify at least one faculty associate who is willing to serve as the dissertation advisor. Therefore, it is essential that applicants contact directly potential faculty advisors well before 15 January. To help identify potential advisors, please see our list of EEEB Faculty Associates. For general advice regarding applications to Ph.D. programs in ecology and evolutionary biology, see A Primer on How to Apply to and Get Admitted to Graduate School in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology [W.P. Carson (1999) Bulletin of the Ecological Society of America 80:246-250].
To apply to the EEEB program, you must complete the Application for Admission steps as outlined from the Miami University Graduate School's Admission page. In that application process, you will be asked to submit the following information or documents:
