Kenneth N Wallace, Ph.D., Associate professor of Biology at Clarkson University, is looking for a college student looking to apply to graduate school who qualifies as underrepresented minority in science, to work towards a Ph.D. degree in his lab (once accepted to the Clarkson Interdisciplinary Bioscience and Biotechnology Ph.D. program,IB&B http://internal.clarkson.edu/biology/graduate/index.html), to be supported by an NIH Diversity supplement to his grant.  The NIH Diversity supplement will be co-written by both the student and mentor (Dr. Wallace). Therefore, a strong, competitive candidate will be chosen.  If awarded, the graduate student will be supported through the duration of the parent grant. The NIH Diversity supplement will allow the student to concentrate on his/her thesis project as he/she will not work as a teaching assistant for the duration of this award.

Dr. Wallace's research interests and potential projects can be found in the Clarkson Biology webpage, https://www.clarkson.edu/node/12366. The main focus of the laboratory is investigation of regulation of the developing intestinal stem cell compartment using the zebrafish model system. We have identified cells that participate in regulation of the mitotic activity of the immature stem cell compartment. These regulatory cells may also play a role in maturation of the stem cell compartment into the adult form.


Interested students should send their CV, personal statement, GRE scores if available, college transcripts, and the name and contact information (email addresses) of two references to kwallace@clarkson.edu ASAP and no later than November 15th 2017.  Early responders are strongly encouraged.  Interested candidates should plan to apply to the IB&B PhD program at Clarkson University.  College seniors are strongly advised to contact Dr. Wallace ASAP if interested in this opportunity.
