  • Graduate Support | Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology | UC Santa Barbara
    generation of students benefits as you did from outstanding training The Robert Haller Graduate Fellowship EEMB is seeking funds to establish a graduate student fellowship to honor and recognize Dr Robert Haller s contributions to the teaching and training thousands of undergraduate and graduate students during his long tenure at the University of California Santa Barbara The graduate fellowship will provide funding for a student to work with Dr Haller to curate and organize his extensive conifer specimen collection in the Cheadle Center for Biodiversity and Ecological Restoration Herbarium formerly the Museum of Systematics and Ecology as part of an ongoing project to install a new compact storage system in the herbarium and curate the algae and botanical collections Named Endowed Fellowships A gift of 200 000 or more establishes a permanent named fellowship Named Quarter Fellowships A gift of 10 000 will fully support a graduate student for one quarter of their career This type of fellowship is extremely helpful for graduate students as it allows them to take a quarter off from teaching and focus solely on their research and dissertation Named Full Year Fellowships A gift of 50 000 or more fully supports a graduate student for one year of their career Named Fellowship Awards A gift of 5 000 or more establishes a one year named award which allows the Department to offer supplemental incentive top off support for the recruitment or retention of an outstanding graduate student Established Named Graduate Awards in EEMB We are deeply grateful for The Ellen Schamberg Burley Graduate Award This award was established by faculty colleagues family and friends of Ellen Schamberg Burley as a continuing tribute to a student who distinguished herself both as an undergraduate and graduate scholar in the Biological Sciences at UC Santa Barbara The award

    protozoa helminthes and their human or non human hosts Outbreaks of infectious diseases are frequently caused by changes to the ecology of the host the pathogen or the environment Therefore understanding the incidence prevalence or timing of diseases requires understanding the ecology of the interaction Parasitic organisms are an important component of ecosystems and they can influence the abundance and dynamics of wild populations drive evolutionary dynamics and in some cases lead to host extinction The majority of diseases of humans are zoonotic meaning that they are transmitted between species from animals to humans and their prevalence is strongly affected by the interaction between humans and the natural world Disease ecology is highly interdisciplinary and researchers in this field frequently draw on tools from genetics molecular biology genomics immunology epidemiology and spatial modeling Disease ecologists at UCSB use both modeling and empirical approaches and investigate pathogens and parasites in marine freshwater and terrestrial systems Faculty Cherie Briggs Dr Briggs studies disease ecology population ecology and systems biology combining theoretical and empirical approaches using models and laboratory and field experiments Armand Kuris Parasite population and community ecology marine ecology crustacean biology Hillary Young The Young lab seeks to understand how and
