Graduate position: Plant Evolutionary Genomics
The Puzey lab (http://puzeylab.weebly.com) at the College of William
and Mary (Williamsburg, VA) is recruiting a graduate student (M.S
Biology) interested in using genomics to understand the development of
complex spatial patterns in plants. Positions for MS program start Fall
2018. Please contact Josh Puzey (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
The successful applicant will be passionate about evolution, interested
in plants, and keen to use genomic techniques to address their research
questions. Students working the Puzey lab get exposure to a wide range of
analyses and techniques including next-generation sequencing, population
genomic analyses, and molecular ecology.
Details about the M.S. program in Biology at W&M can be found here
(http://www.wm.edu/as/biology/graduate/). Full-time students are supported
by teaching assistantships and full tuition waivers. Most students
complete their master’s degree in two years and go on to pursue either
a Ph.D. or M.D. degree. Our program also provides the training required
to enter technical positions in industry and government. Recent grads
are pursuing Ph.D.s at Duke, UC Davis, Johns Hopkins, and University of
Toronto; others are following career paths in biotech, pharmaceuticals,
resource management, and environmental consulting.
