Dr. Kenneth N Wallace at Clarkson University, is looking to fill a Ph.D. position (Interdisciplinary Bioscience and Biotechnology Ph.D. program,IB&B) with a student who qualifies as underrepresented minority in science, to be supported by an NIH Diversity supplement to his grant. The NIH Diversity supplement will be co-written by both the student and mentor (Dr. Wallace).
The main focus of the laboratory (https://www.clarkson.edu/node/12366) is investigation of regulation of the developing intestinal stem cell compartment using the zebrafish model system. We have identified cells that participate in regulation of the mitotic activity of the immature stem cell compartment. These regulatory cells may also play a role in maturation of the stem cell compartment into the adult form.
Students should send their CV, personal statement, GRE scores if available, college transcripts, and the name and contact information (email addresses) of two references to firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP and no later than November 15th 2017. Early responders are strongly encouraged. College seniors are strongly advised to contact Dr. Wallace ASAP if interested in this opportunity.
