The Interdisciplinary Degree Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at Texas A&M University offers a Ph.D. in the field of Ecology and Evolution. We offer a world-class training program that incorporates fields relevant to EEB, spanning evolutionary genomics to animal behavior to landscape ecology. Our faculty and students are associated with 11 departments and 7 colleges across Texas A&M University, bringing together a diverse array of perspectives. There are numerous positions available, please see website for more detailed information on the program and the application process.
Applicants will be evaluated based on their personal statement, grade point average, TOEFL scores (international students only), letters of recommendation, as well as previous research experience. Prospective students should indicate which EEB core faculty members share similar interests. We also encourage prospective students, as they are putting together their application package, to reach out to these faculty members. Travel grants to visit Texas A&M to meet with faculty and graduate students, and explore available resources and facilities are available to outstanding prospective students (subject to safety restrictions).
