Graduate Research Assistantships - Application deadline January 15th, 2009
	The Program in Molecular Plant Biology (PMPB), a Program of 
Research and Scholarly Excellence (PRSE) at Colorado State 
University, is offering Graduate Research Assistantships to highly 
motivated Ph. D. applicants interested in Molecular Plant Biology. 
The PMPB is an interdepartmental program with about 30 faculty 
members from four departments in two different colleges (College of 
Agricultural Science and College of Natural Sciences).  Researchers 
in the PMPB investigate fundamental and applied questions in plant 
biology using molecular approaches.  Together, they have the 
expertise and a strong reputation in all areas of molecular plant 
biology. The participating faculty members are highly interactive and 
have research programs funded by various federal, state and 
international agencies. The questions asked cover the entire field of 
experimental plant biology including biochemistry, biofuels, 
biotechnology, breeding, cell signaling, cell biology, clean energy, 
developmental biology, evolution, genetics, host-microbe 
interactions, infectious diseases, pathology, photosynthesis, 
physiology, phytoremediation, rhizosphere biology, systematics, 
synthetic biology and stress physiology.  In addition to fundamental 
research, several research groups are engaged in research that may 
lead to the development of plants with useful new traits in crop 
plants. Genomic, proteomic and metabolomic approaches are integrated 
in these research programs.  Colorado State University is located at 
the foot of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, in the town of Fort 
Collins, which enjoys one of the best climates in the USA and is a 
perennial in the top 10 best places to live. Geographically and 
scientifically PMPB is in the perfect environment for exciting 
research in plant biology.

	All students in the program are required to rotate through 
three laboratories prior to choosing a home lab. At the end of the 
first year, students select their advisors from any of four 
departments in two colleges. During the first year, students in the 
program are offered a research assistantship and tuition. To provide 
teaching experience, a number of teaching assistantships are offered 
through different departments.  Students in the PMPB will benefit 
from the highly active and interactive group of plant faculty and the 
state-of-the art facilities to conduct cutting-edge science in 
molecular plant biology.  For additional information about this 
program visit http://www.plantbiology.colostate.edu/.   To apply

DEADLINE IS JANUARY 15TH, 2009.  Top applicants will be invited to 
visit CSU during our recruitment week in February 2009.
