DEADLINE EXTENSION: Due to uncertainties regarding the tax legislation currently before congress, the Graduate Program in Ecology and Evolution at Stony Brook University has decided to consider applications for the PhD program submitted before January 15.
Review of applications has already begun and there are limited spots available, so it is advisable to submit as soon as possible. Please see additional program information below.
