Graduate student position in Sensory Neuromodulation at WVU

We’re looking to recruit a creative and eager graduate student (Master's or PhD) to our lab in the Department of Biology at West Virginia University (WVU) starting in either the Fall of 2018 or Spring of 2019. Our lab group uses a variety of techniques in Drosophila (including neuroanatomy, molecular biology, physiology and behavior) to study how neuromodulators, like serotonin, affect sensory processing. We have several projects ranging from determining how a single modulator has diverse effects within a network, to the circuit mechanisms that regulate the activity of modulatory neurons. We have a collaborative group of graduate and undergraduate students, and we work with several labs within our department and at other institutions. WVU is located in Morgantown, which is within short driving distance to Pittsburgh, Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, yet also has easy access to many outdoor recreation opportunities.
