Calling those interested in behavioral genetics, behavioral development, phenotypic plasticity, and sensory ecology!

I will be accepting MS and PhD students interested in behavioral genomics, sensory ecology, the mechanisms underlying behavioral development, or tunicate genomics for fall 2019. Interested prospective students should check out the links to UARK Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and Biology Graduate Program Guidelines below, and contact me at ewesterm@uark.edu.
