currently recruiting graduate students

I am currently seeking motivated students wishing to pursue PhD degrees in the Ecology, Evolution and Behavior grad program, starting Fall 2019. My lab will be starting in August 2019 and I work on broad questions in animal behaviour and cognition, using bumblebees. The majority of grad student research is expected to be lab- and greenhouse-based but there is also the opportunity for fieldwork. Students will be expected to develop their own projects within the framework of general lab interests. Support will be provided by a combination of research and teaching assistantships, which cover tuition and salary (including summer salary).

The Department of Integrative Biology and EEB grad program are top-ranked, with particular strengths in animal behaviour, evolution and ecology. To find out more about the EEB grad program, see:

Please contact Dr. Felicity Muth ( ) to start a conversation. Please include your CV, research interests, and contact information for two references.

Formal applications will be submitted through the UT Austin Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior graduate programs, after having contacted me. Applications are due December 1, 2018.

I anticipate advertising for a postdoctoral researcher and research technician soon
