Employment and Student Opportunities

The 2020 Princeton University Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) Scholars Program will be held October 8-10, 2020 We are currently accepting applications. Click here to begin your application Deadline: June 15, 2020 Webinars offering guidance on the EEB Scholars program, including the application process, will be held on May 19th 2020 and June 2nd at 1:30pm EST.

As part of efforts to increase the diversity and accessibility of graduate studies in ecology and evolutionary biology, Princeton EEB encourages students to apply to the EEB Scholars Program. In this program, talented students (EEB Scholars) will be selected from a competitive applicant pool and invited to Princeton University for a weekend of activities designed to give them the tools to confidently apply to graduate schools, as well as familiarize them with the Princeton EEB department. The program will focus on the graduate application process, connecting with EEB faculty and students, and highlighting Scholars’ academic achievements. Students with backgrounds historically underrepresented in STEM are particularly encouraged to apply. Our department is committed to increasing the presence and visibility of students with exceptional ability and promise who will bring a diversity of viewpoints and cultures to STEM fields generally, and who have demonstrated an interest in and passion for research in EEB specifically. Fostering a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community of scientists is critical to our mission. This program is part of a larger effort to build and support such a scientific community.

The Department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University has a commitment to increase the participation of students with exceptional ability and promise who will bring a diversity of viewpoints and cultures to the sciences, and who have demonstrated interest and passion for research in the broad field of Molecular and Cellular Biology, to apply for and be appointed as a 2020 MOL BIO Scholar. MOL BIO Scholars will be selected from a competitive national applicant pool of junior and senior undergraduates for travel to Princeton University from October 8-10, 2020 and participation in the MOL BIO Scholars program.

Students will arrive October 8 and depart October 10, staying at a hotel near the Princeton University campus, with travel and hotel expenses covered. MOL BIO Scholars will tour the University and attend workshops on the process of applying to and interviewing for graduate school, resources available to our graduate students, as well as participate in the annual Department of Molecular Biology off-campus retreat. At the retreat, graduate students and postdocs from each lab in the department highlight their recent research. MOL BIO Scholars will also be given the opportunity to present a poster on their prior research, as well as to engage in informal and formal networking interactions with MOL BIO faculty and graduate students. It is a great way to preview Princeton and gain insights into the process of applying to graduate school.

U.S. citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled in U.S. colleges or universities (including U.S. territories, Guam Puerto Rico). Eligible applicants should hold an academic status of junior, senior or postbaccalaureate scholar by October, 2020. We strongly encourage applications from Minority Serving Institutions such as Historically Black Colleges and Universities or Hispanic Serving Institutions.

The Prospective Ph.D. Preview (P3) is designed for prospective students to gather information on graduate education at Princeton University. This event is open to any interested students however, we highly encourage participation from first generation/low income students and historically underrepresented groups (which include African Americans, Latinos and Native Americans) given the disparity in graduate education across the country.

P3 invites the class of 2021 and 2022, and post-grad students from historically underrepresented groups (HUGS), to explore graduate education at Princeton in the fall 2020! Program Dates: October 8th and 9th, 2020

Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Diversity Preview Days 2020

September 24-26, 2020

The Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences invites promising, highly qualified, prospective graduate students from diverse backgrounds and experiences to explore graduate programs offered at Yale University. Yale has long thrived on diversity. Yale was not only the first university in North America to award PhD degrees (in 1861), but it was also the first university in North America to award a PhD to an African American, Edward Alexander Bouchet, in the field of Physics in 1876. It is equally noteworthy that with the formal establishment of the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences in 1892 (from the Department of Philosophy and the Arts established in 1847), women were also admitted as candidates for the doctorate. In 1894 Elizabeth Deering Hanscom was among the first seven women to earn the PhD at Yale.

Applications due June 15. Go to https://gsas.yale.edu/preview-days-2020
