NSF-funded Graduate Fellowships in Molecular and Cell Biology
University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Applications are being accepted for graduate fellowships, to begin in the
fall of 1999. Support is guaranteed for four years, with the Ph.D. degree
to be awarded at the end of a four-year research program. The stipend
starts at $15,000 per year, plus tuition. Candidates should have a strong
background in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, or related fields.
Positions are available in the laboratory of Dr. Rogene Schnell to study
mechanisms of gene regulation. Molecular and genetic approaches using
Chlamydomonas are underway to isolate and characterize the proteins that
regulate nitrate assimilation genes (http://comp.uark.edu/~rschnell).
Prior experience with gene cloning, library screening, PCR, enzyme assays,
or in vitro DNA-binding assays would be beneficial. Additional information
about the Biological Sciences Department and the graduate program can be
found at http://comp.uark.edu/~bioinfo/bisc.html.
Interested students should send a letter immediately, outlining interests
and qualifications, to Dr. Rogene Schnell, Department of Biological
Sciences, SCEN 629, University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, AR 72701;
e-mail rschnell at comp.uark.edu; telephone 501-575-6346.
