The Whitlock lab is accepting new graduate students who are interested in studying plant evolution and systematics. In addition to UM, Miami is home to many outstanding botanical institutions, including the Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden (which houses the UM Buswell Herbarium), the Montgomery Botanical Center, the Kampong, and the USDA Subtropical Research Station. Miami is also America's gateway to the Caribbean and Latin America, providing unparalleled opportunities for field research. All graduate students admitted to the Ph.D. program are guaranteed stipend support. In addition, the Biology Department has several competitive fellowships, including the new Lisa D. Anness Graduate Fellowship in Tropical Plant Biology (pdf). Please see the Biology Department webpage on graduate studies for information on fellowships and how to apply.
