Graduate Training

Most years there are one or two openings for qualified students interested in topics such as (but not limited to) insecticide resistance (genetics, mechanisms, molecular biology, etc.), insect toxicology, P450 gene regulation, sex determination in house flies and/or metabolism of pesticides. Students may apply through the Field of Entomology, Field of Genetics and Development or Field of Environmental Toxicology. The field of Entomology has funding opportunities that include graduate research assistantships and teaching assistantships. The Field of Genetics and Development has graduate research assistantships, teaching assistantships and a training grant. Graduate School applications are due about December 1 (for Fall admission of the next year).
