Welcome to EEES!

Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems & Society (EEES), is a new vision for scholarship, education, and service. We are a diverse community of scholars who conduct innovative, interdisciplinary research in the natural sciences and environmental studies, including ecology, evolution, anthropology, environmental economics, geography and earth sciences. Our program balances the study of traditional paradigms and theory with the practical applications of science that are necessary in the Anthropocene.

For prospective students: The EEES program experience includes a customized graduate curriculum for individual students, a weekly colloquium where students gain skills in presenting research and giving critical input on the research of others, and a weekly journal club where students develop professional skills and gain exposure to relevant scientific literature. Students polish their mastery of foundational material, and learn to teach, by working closely with faculty as Teaching Assistants in undergraduate courses in their subject area.

There are two overlapping tracks of scholarship and training in the EEES program. Both contain a core of ecology and ecosystem science, with one track focusing on Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB), and the other focusing on Sustainability, Ecosystems, and Environment (SEE). The latter has the added dimension of environmental social science. Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scientists from EEES will have exceptional training for a growing range of professional positions. This is illustrated by the success of recent graduates of our program.


Postdoctoral Fellow – Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems and Society

We seek applicants for an independent postdoctoral fellowship in the Ecology, Evolution, Ecosystems,and Society (EEES) Graduate Program at Dartmouth College. The ideal candidate will possess a PhD in the natural sciences by the time of the appointment and will work specifically in the field of ecology and evolutionary biology but have a capacity to engage with the broader EEES community. The successful candidate will be expected to initiate and develop independent research projects in ecology and evolutionary biology. In addition, the fellow will be responsible for enhancing undergraduate and graduate student education, and will lead a graduate seminar course or working group dedicated to developing a research product. The ideal candidate will be a strong contributing member of the vibrant EEES community at Dartmouth and will foster productive discourse both within and beyond the program. EEES is a diverse community of scholars who conduct innovative research in the natural sciences and interdisciplinary environmental studies, including ecology, evolution, anthropology, environmental economics, geography and earth sciences. Applicants should identify in their cover letter one or more faculty sponsors from the EEES program.
