The Ph.D. student would study and train under the primary direction of Dr. Bryan Ballif, an expert in signal transduction, proteomics and neurodevelopment. In collaboration with Dr. Alicia Ebert the student would focus on signaling mechanisms governing the neurodevelopment of zebrafish.
This is a unique opportunity to learn protein mass spectrometry, cellular biochemistry and zebrafish developmental biology. Interested students should contact Professor Ballif directly: email@example.com
Twelve-month Funding for five years would come from a mixture of graduate student teaching and research assistantships.
The Biology Department at the University of Vermont has excellent facilities for research, and there are opportunities for collaboration with faculty and graduate students in other units on campus, including the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine.
