A position is available for a motivated MSc student in the Sinclair lab at the University of Western Ontario to work on a project on functional genomics of springtails (Collembola).
The project will involve fieldwork, laboratory physiology and the use of microarrays to find candidate genes associated with seasonal changes in physiology.
The successful applicant will be expected to travel to Cambridge, UK to conduct the microarray work.
This project would suit a motivated, imaginative student with an enjoyment of fieldwork and/or the outdoors, and experience or an interest in either molecular biology and/or animal physiology.
Applications, which should include an unofficial copy of your academic transcript, a resume, a letter outlining why you are interested in this position and your research experience and goals and the names and contact details of two academic referees should be sent by email to Dr Brent Sinclair at bsincla7[at]uwo.ca.
