Established in 1636, Harvard University (HU) in Cambridge (USA) is world-renowned university, excelling in both faculty research, teaching and student learning in a wide range of disciplines. It is among the top three of the world in almost all university rankings. With 43 Nobel laureates among current and former faculty members, Harvard is globally recognized as an undisputed center of academic excellence.
The Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology (OEB) at Harvard University will admit and train students from the MEME programme. OEB is committed to training scientists pursuing a greater understanding of the evolution of the earth’s life processes. The department’s programs, many of which are interdisciplinary or linked to research in other departments, constitute a frontier of scientific vision in organismic and evolutionary biology. Modern research facilities, combined with the natural history collections and libraries of the Harvard University Herbaria and the Museum of Comparative Zoology, provide unique opportunities for meeting the challenges inherent in this pursuit.
