program. We are looking for highly motivated students who wish to develop
high-caliber research programs in any area of ecology and evolutionary

IEE consists of a dynamic, energetic, and highly interactive group of
faculty members, graduate students, and postdocs whose research interests
are world-renowned and span traditional disciplines. Particular strengths
of the group include molecular evolution, evolutionary genetics and
genomics, evolution of development, and microbial, population, community,
and ecosystems ecology.  IEE maintains close ties with other research
institutes and departments on campus, including the Institutes of Molecular
Biology and Neuroscience, the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology, and the

both the Cascade Mountains and the Oregon Coast. It is consistently voted
one of the top ten greenest cities in the U.S.
