The Ecology program at Colorado State University (CSU) welcomes applicants for MS and PhD students to start Fall 2022. We provide a positive graduate school experience and outstanding education in ecology across a range of ecosystems, taxa, and subdisciplines. Our goal is to offer students strong training for professional success across a variety of career paths. Currently, we support a vibrant community of over 100 students.
The deadline for full consideration is January 15. Details are available at https://ecology.colostate.edu/apply/. Graduate student salaries, in return for filling research or teaching assistantships, are generally provided through faculty advisors (https://ecology.colostate.edu/faculty-directory/). Tuition is typically covered for students supported by assistantships and health insurance is available. A confirmed advisor is necessary for admission to the program, but not for application submission. Most students accepted to the program find advisors through their shared interests. Financial support is often in flux given pending grants, so there is no need to wait to see a particular position advertised. Advisors interested in accepting a student typically work with them to procure funding from various sources. Thus, we encourage prospective students to reach out directly to faculty members with expertise in your area of interest.
