I will be accepting ~2 graduate students (fully funded via research assistantships) to begin Fall 2020. Graduate students should expect to conduct research along the major themes of the lab (see website for more details on our research), although there is flexibility for grad students to design projects that best suit their interests. Potential study topics may include evolution of plant defense across climate gradients, influence of neighboring plants on herbivory rates and population dynamics, variation in the effectiveness of biocontrol insects on invasive plants, plant-soil-insect interactions, among others.
Prior to applying, please send an inquiry email and CV to Dr. Phil Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org. For best consideration, please inquire by early October. In the body of the email or a separate attachment, please describe your research interests and experience, career goals, and three potential study topics you may be interested in pursuing. Graduate students should apply through the Department of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida by 15 January 2020. (Note that my position begins in January 2020, so I may not be listed on the faculty page until then). Applicants for an MS degree should hold a BS in biology, ecology, entomology, or closely related field. Applicants for a PhD degree should have a MS or equivalent experience.
