The Wong lab at the University of Nebraska Omaha is seeking applications for Ph.D. or Master’s graduate students interested in the fields of behavioral neurogenomics or neuroethology. Research in the lab is currently funded by the National Science Foundation.
The lab is broadly interested in the proximate mechanisms of variation in complex behaviors. Currently we are investigating how animals overcome stress, its underlying neuromolecular mechanisms and its impact on learning and memory capabilities. We draw on principles and methodologies from behavioral ecology, neuroethology, molecular neuroscience, to bioinformatics.
