Graduate Research Assistantships
If anyone has students who are interested in grad school in the plant
sciences, our Interdepartmental Program in Plant Molecular and Cellular
Biology has assistantships open for Fall 1996, Spring 1997 and Fall 1997.
Participating faculty are members of Environmental Horticulture, Forestry,
Horticultural Sciences, Microbiology and Cell Science, and Plant Pathology
Departments. Entering Ph.D. students participate in a 6-9 month rotation
program, providing exposure to 3-6 faculty laboratories.
Assistantships without rotation may also be available through direct
application to faculty members working in the desired research area.
Faculty research interests include genome organization and mapping;
chromatin structure; gene structure and regulation; responses to
environmental stress; organelle genetics and biogenesis; genetic
basis of development; cell culture, regeneration and transformation; and
plant-microbe interactions. For information, including a list of faculty
and their research interests, contact Dr. Robert R. Schmidt, Graduate
