Ecology Assistantships - Nicholas School of the Environment

ResearchStipendGraduate StudentsTeaching

The Ph.D. program in ecology requires completing a dissertation based on original research. Students typically spend several years on field or lab work after coursework and preliminary exams. Ph.D. students receive support through fellowships, research assistantships, or teaching assistantships, which include a stipend and benefits. The lab usually has about five Ph.D. students, with one or two new students joining annually. Admission is highly competitive, favoring applicants with a Master’s degree, a clear research focus in marine conservation ecology, and qualities that align with the lab's collaborative and supportive environment. Students are expected to be dedicated, collaborative, and contribute positively to the lab culture.
