Graduate School Applications are due December 1, 2009
If you are intetested in joining our lab as a graduate student, the deadline for applications is December 1. The Graduate Bioscience Admissions program coordinates all graduate admissions in the biological sciences at Stanford. Please consult their website for the current application procedures. Don't be scared off by the fact that the site is located in the medical school domain. It is this way for bureaucratic reasons only. It is essential that you list Dmitri as a potential advisor on your application form if you are interested in joining our lab and also to mark the Department of Biology and choose "evolution and ecology" as your interest within that. This will ensure that Dmitri will see your application. Also contact Dmitri ahead of time (firstname.lastname@example.org) - and he will also help you with the admissions process. In general, it is a realy good idea to contact your potential advisors if you want to be successful in the admissions process. Departmental funding for graduate study at Stanford is limited. It is important to apply for an NSF Graduate Fellowship and any other sources of external funding at the same time as you are applying for graduate study.
