KU Drosophila Biology Graduate Student Recruitment for Fall 2020
Drosophila research labs in the departments of Molecular Biosciences (MB) and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Kansas seek talented applicants for graduate admission to begin study in the Fall of 2020. Our strengths include evolutionary and quantitative genetics, behavior and development with labs working on specific projects including genetic conflict, mating behavior, the genetics of complex traits, the evolution of immunity and limb development.
Applicants to the EEB program (https://eeb.ku.edu/prospective-students) are admitted directly to work with a specific advisor while applicants to the MB program (https://molecularbiosciences.ku.edu/graduate-program-faqs) complete a rotation cycle before choosing a laboratory. Interested candidates should peruse the MB faculty website (https://molecularbiosciences.ku.edu/faculty) and the EEB faculty website (https://eeb.ku.edu/faculty) and contact the department or specific faculty members for more information.
