FELLOWSHIPS TO PURSUE GRADUATE STUDIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT -- 
EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY AND
EVOLUTIONARY ECOLOGY

The Evolutionary Ecology cluster in the Zoology Department has received a 
major grant from the National Science Foundation to fund six (6) new 
Ph.D. students in Ecology/Evolution/Animal Behavior.  These students will 
start the program in Fall, 1995 and be funded for five years.  The 
stipend is $14,000/year, with full tuition paid, plus a stipend for 
travel and supplies.  The Evolutionary Ecology cluster also has a $1.5 
million  grant to support research which can be used to assist graduate 
students.  Students who receive a GRT must be US citizens or residents.

Students who receive one of the Training Grants must conduct a research 
project in either 
ecological/evolutionary parasitology 
or 
use molecular techniques in some area of ecology-evolution-or animal 
behavior.

Every graduate student in the program is required to take courses and 
other training to learn modern molecular techniques as applied to studies 
in population biology.  This training is provided in the clusterÕs 
Molecular Ecology and Evolution Laboratory that is funded by NSF.

The Graduate Program especially is interested in applications from women 
or members of minority groups not well represented in science.

A full packet of information (including application materials) can be 
obtained from Jos. J. Schall, Department of Zoology, University of 
Vermont, Burlington, VT 05405 or by e-mail at     jschall at moose.uvm.edu
