A number of funded graduate research assistantships are available to support
study in the Plant Physiology Ph.D. Program at the University of Kentucky.
These assistanships are part of new and ongoing initiatives to expand research
and education in Plant Biotechnology at the University of Kentucky.  Areas of
research emphasis focus on plant bioengineering, ranging from metabolic
engineering to functional genomics approaches to study and manipulate gene
expression.  These assistantships offer excellent opportunities for broad-based
training in plant biology.

The Plant Physiology Ph.D. Program at the University of Kentucky
( is an interdisciplinary
program involving faculty in several departments in the College of Agriculture.

The Program offers an excellent balance of research, coursework, and practical
technical training leading to the Ph.D. degree. Laboratories with
state-of-the-art instrumentation and a high faculty-to-student ratio give
students exceptional opportunities to perform original research and to develop
professionally.  Collaborative research is strongly encouraged, and may include
cooperation with laboratories in the Chandler Medical Center at the University
of Kentucky.

Prospective students with interests in these areas are encouraged to contact
Dr. Arthur G. Hunt by e-mail (aghunt00 at or to apply using the
electronic application found on-line at .
