Ecology and Evolution
College or University: University of Oregon
Type of degree: M.S.
Brief overview of program: The Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (CEEB), established in 2002, promotes and facilitates research and graduate education in ecology and evolutionary biology. The center encourages scientific interactions among its members and between members and the wider academic community. It fosters a collegial and stimulating intellectual environment; supports the development of shared research facilities; and sponsors seminars, workshops, and colloquiums.
Because the varied expertise of its members is focused on related problems, researchers with specialties ranging from molecular evolution to the study of ecosystems directly benefit from interacting with one another. Active research programs use several approaches in the laboratory or in the field to investigate questions related to molecular evolution, evolutionary genetics, evolution of development, microbial ecology, pathogen-host interactions, global change, biogeochemistry, population biology, community dynamics, and ecosystem ecology.
Graduate students who are interested in working with one of the members of the center should apply through the Department of Biology. Students who want to work with an associate member from another department should apply to that department. Applicants should indicate an interest in the center on their application.
