Prospective Graduate Students
I am looking for motivated graduate students to start in the fall of 2014 and beyond. You should have research interests that are a good match for the lab. If you are interested, please send me an email in the early fall of 2013 including 1) a statement of the kinds of research questions that you would like to pursue, 2) a brief overview of your previous academic and research experiences, and 3) how your interests might fit in with the lab. Please also include a copy of your CV or resume, your GRE scores (if you have them), and an unofficial transcript. Funding may be available through research and/or teaching assistantships. In addition the University of Florida offers prestigious University Fellowships for some of the most promising students.
Undergraduate Research Assistants
Watch our video and check out the information below to learn more about undergraduate research at the Miller Lab:
Research Assistantships are currently available for work on behavior, morphology, and evolution in the cactus bugs (Chelinidea vittiger and Narnia femorata). Much of this work is done in the greenhouse or the field at The Ordway-Swisher Biological Station (http://www.ordway.ufl.edu/). Academic credit is available, and I encourage the undergraduates working in my laboratory to apply for UF programs such as the University Scholars Program. Undergraduate assistants are expected to be motiviated, hard-working, and inquisitive. I strive to give undergraduates an exciting laboratory experience and the opportunity to learn what research is all about.
