A Ph.D. student position is open at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory,
University of Southern Mississippi, Ocean Spring, MS
( ). The anticipated start date is September 2005,
but early employment is possible. This position is funded by the Aquatic
Research Consortium (ARC) and the degree would be in the Department of
Coastal Sciences, College of Science and Technology. This is a graduate
research assistant position and involves analysis of the effects of
exposure to hypoxia and contaminants in small fish species (Japanese
medaka and sheepshead minnows). Endpoints being analyzed include
early-life stage toxicity and changes in gene expression (toxicogenomics)
in both laboratory exposures and field samples. Our laboratory is equipped
with a comparative genomics core (custom microarray production, automatic
DNA sequencer, bioanalyzer, real-time PCR), embryo imaging instruments,
and a massive aquatic toxicology facility (12,000 square feet). Experience
in one of the following areas is a plus: fluorescent in situ
hybridization, fish embryo microinjection, fish embryo imaging, or
microarray analysis. No set deadline for application is in place. If
interested, please use the contact information below.
