Hello all. I'm new here, but I have been in love with all thing cephalopod (especially octopuses, and not until recently, cuttlefish) since I was a teenager. It is most definitely my dream to get a Ph. D studying their behavior, work at a university, and spend the rest of my life trying to genetically engineer octopuses to walk on land and then use them to take over the world. The problem? I can't seem to find anyone who studies cephalopod behavior in the United States. All my leads have been dead ends. So far, I have contacted the following professors, with no response from any of them: Jesse Purdy at Southwestern University in Texas Jean Boal at Millersville University in Pennsylvania John Cigliano at Cedar Crest College, also in Pennsylvania John Woods at the Aquarium of the Pacific in California Radio silence from all of them. I wasn't even asking them if I could be their Ph. D student because they all work at institutes or universities that don't offer anything above a Master's; all I asked was if they knew of schools where I can get a Ph. D studying cephalopd behavior. SO! Long story short, does anyone know of any graduate schools in the United States where I can study cephalopod behavior and get a Ph. D? I would like to stay in the US to be closer to my elderly parents and boyfriend, but I will grit my teeth and go abroad if I absolutely have to. Thanks, everyone!
