In November of 2012, the Environmental Sciences Ph.D. program at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio will begin accepting applications for Fall 2013 admission. The program is designed to provide skills and training to better understand and solve complex environmental problems, such as those caused by anthropogenic pollutants, invasive species, habitat fragmentation and loss of biodiversity, that can affect both human and ecosystem health. Our students receive training in preparation for careers in academia, state and federal agencies, industry, and non-profit organizations.
Through a rigorous core curriculum and dissertation research, our interdisciplinary program is designed to broadly expose students to both traditional and emerging areas of environmental sciences, and offers the ability to focus on research in a more defined area. Our program includes faculty in the departments of Biological Sciences, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Pharmacology and Toxicology, and Mathematics and Statistics.
The program offers competitive stipends for graduate students ($22,660 for Fall 2012) along with a waiver of tuition costs for full-time students.
