Graduate Research Opportunities

Plankton and Molecular Ecology
          Ph.D. student positions are available at the University of Oklahoma, through the Department of Biology and the Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, for studies in plankton and molecular ecology, particularly in relation to harmful algal blooms, the long-term focus of the Plankton Ecology and Limnology Lab (PELL), as part of a multi-investigator, multi-institutional collaboration. Applications are welcomed by students seeking experience and training in a variety of plankton and microbial ecology techniques, ranging from analyses of life histories, demography, and species composition in freshwater planktonic communities, to metagenomic analyses of microbial/planktonic communities in natural and experimental settings, to physiological ecology and genome-guided gene expression research in the HAB taxon Prymnesium parvum. Students will be encouraged to develop both collaborative and independent research projects within and beyond ongoing molecular, ecological, and toxicological research focused on HABs in inland and coastal marine habitats.
           Successful applicants should have a B.S. or M.S. degree in biology, ecology, environmental science, chemistry/biochemistry, or other relevant fields. Applicants with previous experience in genomics, transcriptomics, and bioinformatics (terminal, R, python, perl, or similar), phylogenetics and phylogenomics, biochemistry (particularly in secondary metabolism), molecular and cell biology techniques (culture growth, cloning, real time PCR) or other related fields are particularly encouraged to apply.
           For further information please contact Dave Hambright (http://faculty-staff.ou.edu/H/Karl.D.Hambright-1/). Inquiries should include a brief description of research interests, past research experience, and a curriculum vitae. Information on the OU and EEB graduate programs, as well as on the application process, can be found at http://www.ou.edu/content/cas/biology/graduate-studies.html and http://www.ou.edu/eeb/.

Predator-prey life histories, food webs, and geographical ecology
           Ph.D. and M.S. student positions are available at the University of Oklahoma, through the Department of Biology and the Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, for studies in fish predator-prey life histories, food webs, and geographical ecology. Applications are welcomed by students with interests in aquatic ecology, trophic dynamics, predator-prey interactions, and the interactions between climate change and biogeographical patterns. Students will be encouraged to develop both collaborative and independent research projects within and beyond ongoing studies in fish, plankton, and microbial ecology in OU’s Plankton Ecology and Limnology Lab (PELL).
           Successful applicants should have a B.S. or M.S. degree in biology, ecology, environmental science, or other relevant fields. Applicants with previous experience in limnology, fish ecology, plankton ecology, or other related fields are particularly encouraged to apply.

Remote sensing of harmful algae and biogeography
           Ph.D. and M.S. student positions are available at the University of Oklahoma, through the Department of Biology and the Program in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, for studies in remote sensing of water quality, particularly in relation to Harmful Algal Blooms (HABS), a long-term focus of the Plankton Ecology and Limnology Lab (PELL) and the Earth Observation and Modeling Facility (EOMF), as part of a multi-investigator, multi-institutional collaboration. Applications are welcomed by students with interests in aquatic ecology, water quality, plankton dynamics, and the interactions between climate change and biogeographical patterns. Students will be encouraged to develop both collaborative and independent research projects within and beyond ongoing studies in fish, plankton, and microbial ecology in OU’s Plankton Ecology and Limnology Lab (PELL).
           Successful applicants should have a B.S. or M.S. degree in biology, ecology, environmental science, or other relevant fields. Applicants with previous experience in limnology, fish ecology, plankton ecology, remote sensing, or other related fields are particularly encouraged to apply.
