We are writing to announce multiple funded PhD positions for incoming graduate students in Experimental Psychology at Oklahoma State University.
OSU is one of very few universities in the U.S. with multiple social scientists trained in evolutionary approaches to behavior), including Jennifer Byrd-Craven (psychobiology) and Jaimie Arona Krems (social psychology) in Psychology. Byrd-Craven and Krems co-founded the new and growing Oklahoma Center for Evolutionary Analysis, which includes Mary Towner (human behavioral ecology) and other faculty in Integrative Biology. Topics of interest can be found on lab webpages, and include female sociality, friendship, cooperation, conflict, hormones and neurobiology, human family systems, and stereotyping and prejudice.
Please extend this information to engaged and interested undergraduate students and others seeking to apply to graduate school this cycle.
We welcome students from interdisciplinary backgrounds (e.g., biology, anthropology) as well as students with interest but no current training in evolutionary approaches. We also encourage students from groups underrepresented in the sciences to apply. Students should contact prospective mentors directly. The deadline for applications is December 1, 2019. Application information can be found here.
