The Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) graduate program is designed for students interested in the study of mechanisms controlling the composition, structure, and functional processes of ecological systems and the mechanisms that regulate the pattern and rate of evolutionary change within and among species. Our interdepartmental program provides students with an interdisciplinary education and opportunities to train and conduct research in an area of interest. Our graduates are qualified to pursue basic and applied research careers in academia, government, and industry. We hope you will consider Iowa State University for your graduate studies in ecology and evolutionary biology.
