Faculty Recruiting Grad Assistants for Fall 2015

Our Biological Sciences MS and PhD degrees include specializations in one of three emphasis areas:

1) Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
2) Cell and Developmental Biology
3) Comparative Organismal Biology

We have faculty who have active research programs in each of these emphasis areas.

The following faculty are recruiting new Biological Science graduate students for their labs for Fall 2015:

Baeza, Antonio          - Behavioral & Evolutionary Biology/Molecular Phylogenetics
Bain, Lisa                  - Mechanisms of Arsenic Toxicity
Baldwin, William        - Toxicology, Mitochondrial Function, and Autism
Bielenberg, Douglas   - Plant-Environment interactions
Blob, Rick                  - Evolutionary Morphology and Biomechanics
Campbell, Barbara      - Microbial Ecology and Bioinformatics    
Cao, Min              - Bacteria, Host, and Inter-kingdom Communications/Nutraceuticals and Probiotics on Health
Chapman, Susan        - Developmental Biology and Genetics of Autism

Our Microbiology MS and PhD degrees include specializations in one of three emphasis areas:

1) Cellular and Physiological Microbiology
2) Microbial Genetics and Molecular Microbiology
3) Environmental Microbiology 

We have faculty who have active research programs in each of these emphasis areas.
