PhD Graduate Research Assistantship in Anatomy and Physiology

Faculty sponsor: Dr. Stephanie Hall; Start date: Fall 2021

Job description: The Exercise Neuroscience Laboratory is seeking a PhD candidate to conduct exercise physiology research in a model of neurodegenerative disease. The PhD candidate will use cellular and animal models of Alzheimer’s disease to: (1) establish an understanding of the exercise-induced neuroprotection elicited in this model, and (2) determine the mechanisms responsible for neuroprotection. This project will allow students to become skilled in administering exercise protocols, assessing behavioral changes, identifying histological and biochemical shifts in brain and skeletal muscle tissues.

Qualification: Interested students should have a B.S. or M.S. degree in either Exercise Science, Neuroscience, Biomedical Science, Integrative Physiology or a related field.

Compensation: This graduate assistantship includes a stipend of $35,500, full tuition waiver, and health insurance.

To apply: Interested individuals, please send Dr. Hall (stephaniehall@vet.k-state.edu) an email stating your interest in this project with your CV or resume attached. To ensure full consideration, inquire by Jan. 1, 2021.
