Graduate Research Assistantships at Colorado State University
Two graduate research assistantships in wheat breeding and genetics are available in the Soil & Crop Sciences Department of Colorado State University in Fort Collins. One assistantship is for a Ph.D. student to work on a project to improve drought tolerance in winter wheat by utilizing synthetic hexaploid germplasm. The other assistantship is for either a Ph.D. or M.S. student, who will focus on one of several areas, including inheritance and molecular marker tagging of pest resistance (Russian wheat aphid, wheat streak mosaic virus, wheat rusts); end-use quality improvement; or germplasm enhancement and QTL mapping of drought stress tolerance traits. The assistantships are available beginning in Spring, Summer, or Fall, 2009, and include a 12-month stipend plus tuition. For more information, see detailed descriptions posted at http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/SoilCrop/grad/grad_program.htm.
