Yee lab of Aquatic insect ecology

Deadline for applications is 15 October 2011

Applicants are invited for two highly motivated students (1 M.S., 1 Ph.D.) to join the lab of Donald Yee.  These positions will be funded through a
National Institutes of Health grant investigating the effects of environmental filters on container mosquito communities.  This work will have a significant focus on aquatic systems, nutrient and microorganism dynamics, and invasive species.  Projects will be based on a combination of field sampling and field and laboratory experiments to understand what regulates populations and communities of mosquitoes in nature, as well as testing a variety of general ecological questions.  Other possibilities for research exist, although students will be expected to participate in grant funded projects.  More information concerning the Yee lab can be found here:

General requirements:  Prior field experience and coursework in ecology, entomology, and statistics is preferred.  Preference will be given to applicants who have had experience with mosquitoes or other aquatic insects.  Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Funding:  Support is available for 3 years and includes full tuition scholarships along with basic and major medical health coverage to students in good standing academically.  Besides grant support, students will also be supported on teaching assistantships at various times.  Funding for students will be provided to present their work at scientific meetings.

Entrance requirements: Although the Department of Biological Sciences does not have a minimum set of scores to be eligible for entrance into the graduate program, potential applicants should expect to have a GPA of ≥ 3.00 and have taken the GRE before application (≥ 1000 combined score).  For more information visit:  http://www.usm.edu/biology/graduate_faq.htm

USM:  The University of Southern Mississippi, a Carnegie Research High Activity institution with 15,000 students, is located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, near the Gulf Coast and has abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation.  Hattiesburg is the medical, commercial, and cultural center of southern Mississippi and is ranked in the top five small metropolitan areas in the United States.  The Department of Biological Sciences is comprised of about 25 faculty and offers baccalaureate, Master of Science, and Ph.D. degrees.  Over 60 graduate students currently pursue master’s and doctoral degrees.  Further information about the department may be found at: http://www.usm.edu/biology/
