The Baker Lab (http://www.rlbakerlab.com ) in the Biology Department at Miami University of Ohio is recruiting highly motivated graduate students (M.S. or Ph.D.; multiple positions available) to study eco/micro evolutionary developmental biology. Research in the Baker Lab includes work on locally adapted wildflowers and leveraging evo-devo approaches for sustainable agriculture in crop improvement in agroecologically relevant settings.
Preferred candidates will have an enthusiasm for learning and a background in agricultural sciences, botany, evolution, ecology, genetics and/or a related field. The Baker Lab values diversity, inclusivity, and equity. Students from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to apply, as are students who participated in research as undergraduates. NSF Research Experiences for Undergrads (REU) or McNair Scholars are highly encouraged to apply.
Successful applicants will receive tuition waivers and at least one year of support as research assistants and are guaranteed teaching assistantships throughout their graduate studies (2 years total for M.S. or 6 years total for Ph.D.).
Interested applicants should contact Dr. Rob Baker at email@example.com. Applicants will need to submit a personal statement, CV, 3 letters of recommendation, GRE scores, proof English proficiency (if applicable), and baccalaureate transcripts via http://miamioh.edu/graduate-school/admission/.
