Yee lab of Aquatic insect ecology
UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI

Deadline for applications is 15 October 2011

.) Applicants are invited for two highly motivated students (one MS., A 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 three 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
