Welcome

The EEB Group at the University of Virginia unites laboratory groups that share common research interests in evolutionary biology, ecology, animal behavior, disease ecology, and organismal biology.  We explore a variety of field and model systems to understand how evolution shapes biodiversity, and how organisms interact with each other and their environments.

Research in EEB ranges across levels of biological organization

from cellular mechanisms of adaptation, to interactions

among individuals within species, to phylogenetic patterns of

diversity. Our students and faculty are regularly recognized with

university, national, and international awards for their teaching

and research accomplishments.

Graduate Program

Graduate training in the Evolution, Ecology, and Behavior group emphasizes research creativity, independence, and collaboration. We are looking for students who bring their own ideas to the conversation, and who are willing to explore and master new techniques to research those ideas.

Upcoming Events

Graduate students, postdocs, and faculty of the EEB group gather weekly to exchange ideas about current or upcoming research. The active EEB group also participates or hosts multiple events throughout the year.
