Genomic Enablement of Aquaculture, An Interdisciplinary PhD Program to Improve Aquaculture Through Genomic Sciences: Molecular Mechanisms of Immunity to Disease

The Department of Zoology at North Carolina State University announces the availability of a Fellowship beginning in 2008 for PhD studies of Genomic Sciences in Aquaculture. This fellowship will involve interdisciplinary study and result in a scientist who is broadly trained in applying genomic science to research and development of technologies for advancing aquaculture. It will provide a stipend of $24,000, tuition, health insurance and research support. The fellow will join two other fellows in this program who work in the laboratories of internationally recognized faculty members who have been pioneers in applying the methodologies of genomic sciences to the reproduction, growth and rearing of fish. Research for this particular fellowship will be focused on Molecular Mechanisms of Immunity to Fish Pathogens. For details about the research focus, see:

Review of applications for this fellowship will begin on 15 December 2007 and will remain open until a suitable candidate is identified. The chosen applicant will be expected to begin the fellowship no later than 15 May 2008. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Applicants should submit a brief resume and statement of research interests and goals, copies of previous transcripts and GRE scores, and 3 letters of recommendation. Please send applications to the Department of Zoology graduate program ( Address all enquiries to Edward J. Noga, Professor of Aquatic Medicine, Department of Clinical Sciences, 4700 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27606 ( North Carolina State University is an Equal Opportunity Employer and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, or national origin.
