Dear colleagues:
Please distribute this information to potential students.

International Master's Programme in Ecology and Evolution

The Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Studies at the University of Groningen (Netherlands) organizes a highly successful master's programme on the interface between ecology and evolution. This two-year "top master" programme is designed to provide an optimal preparation for a subsequent PhD programme and eventually for a scientific career in academic research. Through intensive student-teacher interaction during courses, seminars, practicals and individual research projects, students get an intense training in modern research paradigms and techniques. Much emphasis will be placed on the development of critical thinking and the training in "soft skills" like efficient commun­ication or writing grant proposals. The programme is highly selective and aimed at the brightest and most ambitious students from all over the world. All foreign students admitted are eligible for a two-year scholarship. The deadline for application is 15 April 2006. For more information visit www.rug.nl/biol/evobio or contact
