Default Ph.D. Studentships: Functional Genomics of miRNAs and siRNAs




Ph.D. Studentships: Functional Genomics of miRNAs and siRNAs.
Starting Fall 2006 and 2007. Delaware Biotechnology Institute,
University of Delaware

Two Ph.D. Studentships are open to study the role of miRNAs and siRNAs
from plants, an area of research focus at the University of Delaware.
(see Lu et al., Science, 309:1567-1569, 2005; Henderson et al, Nature
Genetics, 38:721-725,2006; Meyers et al., Current Opinion in
Biotechnology, 17:139-146, 2006; Souret et al., Mol. Cell, 15:173-183,
2004). Possible topics of research include the role of miRNAs and
specialized siRNAs in abiotic stress responses in Arabidopsis, mRNA
stability regulated by hormones or the clock in Arabidopsis, and the
interaction of microbes with Medicago truncatula. The successful
candidates will be exposed to small RNA library construction,
identification of mRNA targets of miRNAs, small RNA microarrays, small
RNA biosynthesis mutants, and studies of biological function
involving reverse genetic analysis of miRNA targets, miRNA
overexpression, and multi-network modeling. He/she will develop
expertise in some or all of these areas depending on the project and
will be exposed to sophisticated computational analysis. Students
will receive a competitive graduate stipend, university-paid
tuition, and medical insurance benefits. See
[1]http://ag.udel.edu/research/ito/index.html for additional details
about our Ph.D. program. Applications are especially encouraged from
candidates and who enjoy working both independently and as part of a
collaborative team. Please contact Pam Green [2][Only registered users see links. ].edu for
the Arabidopsis studentship and Janine Sherrier
[3][Only registered users see links. ].edu for the Legume studentship, and include your
CV.

The University of Delaware is located in a nice college town along the
eastern corridor, about an hour from Philadelphia and Baltimore and
two hours from New York and Washington, DC. The Delaware
Biotechnology Institute is a state of the-art-facility built by the
University about five years ago [4]http://www.dbi.udel.edu/

The University of Delaware is an Equal Opportunity Employer which
encourages applications from minority group members and women.
