Graduate Student Positions available

Cancer Biology

One PhD student opening is available in the Molecular and Cellular Cancer Biology Lab of Dr. Jianzhong Yu at Kansas State University, Department of Anatomy and Physiology. The focus of research in our lab is to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying organ size control and tumorigenesis, with specific emphasis on understanding the molecular mechanisms of the Hippo pathway and mTOR pathway regulated tissue growth. For more information, please visit: http://www.vet.k-state.edu/education/anatomy-physiology/faculty-staff/faculty/yu/index.html.  Interested candidates should apply on-line to the K-State Graduate School (http://www.k-state.edu/grad/admissions/application-process/) and concurrently send a letter of interest, transcripts and a resume/CV listing any publications to Ms. Gail Eyestone, Graduate Program co-ordinator, Department of Anatomy and Physiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, 228 Coles Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-5802, 785-532-5666, geyestone@vet.k-state.edu. Letter of interest should clearly state interest in pursuing PhD with Dr. Jianzhong Yu.  

Molecular Neurodegeneration 

One PhD student opening is available in the Laboratory of Dr. Yulan Xiong at Kansas State University, Department of Anatomy and Physiology.  Our lab focuses on molecular pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease using various model systems including yeast, Drosophila, mice, primary and human neuronal cultures. The general approach in our lab is to use a powerful combination of genetics, molecular biology and behavioral analysis to decipher the molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegenerative diseases in human.  For more information, please visit: http://www.vet.k-state.edu/education/anatomy-physiology/faculty-staff/faculty/xiong/index.html Interested candidates should apply on-line to the K-State Graduate School (http://www.k-state.edu/grad/admissions/application-process/) and concurrently send a letter of interest, transcripts and a resume/CV listing any publications to Ms. Gail Eyestone, Graduate Program co-ordinator, Department of Anatomy and Physiology, College of Veterinary Medicine, 228 Coles Hall, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506-5802, 785-532-5666, geyestone@vet.k-state.edu.
