The Werner lab at Michigan Tech in the Department of Biological Sciences announces a vacant graduate student fellowship to obtain a Ph.D., which is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The successful applicant will start in January 2017. The title of the project is “The role of toolkit genes in generating complex color patterns in Drosophila”. This project includes fruit fly husbandry, molecular cloning, transgenic techniques (including CRISPR), and fluorescent imaging of transgenic flies. The graduate student will also have lab management responsibilities and supervise undergraduate research assistants, who help with the project. Previous research experience in a molecular biology setting is required. The ideal candidate has a previously earned M.Sc. degree in developmental biology and at least one publication in this field. Please contact Thomas Werner for more information.
