Academic Level:
Graduate Students (PhD)

Evolutionary primatology is a discipline that draws its theory, methods, and empirical data from many areas within the biological sciences, anthropology, and geology. Students in this program take courses in all of these areas in the four doctoral programs, attend seminars that draw upon the staff of all cooperating institutions, and have the opportunity to engage in original research in laboratories, museums, and in the field.

NYCEP is an NSF-supported doctoral training program that equips students with the knowledge and skills to pursue a career at the cutting-edge of fields related to evolutionary primatology. Students with undergraduate degrees in physical anthropology or biology are typically best-prepared for graduate studies in our institutions; those with degrees in earth sciences or psychology may also have suitable preparation.

Our diverse faculty, current students, and successful alumni pursue research in morphology, paleontology, systematics, population genetics, primate behavior, ecology, and conservation in our numerous laboratories and at field sites around the world.
