Our graduates all go on to great positions or postdoctoral fellowships at the finest research institutions.

All students are supported with teaching assistantships, research assistantships, or fellowships. Miami ecologists also have a NSF-funded Integrated Graduate Education Research and Training Grant (IGERT) to support several Ph.D. students in aquatic ecology.
