The Wong lab is seeking applications for graduate student positions (Master’s or Ph.D.). The lab is broadly interested in the proximate mechanisms of variation in complex behaviors. We employ an integrative approach to understand the molecular and neural mechanisms of stress coping and related behaviors. More specifically, we examine the network of brain regions that modulate variation in stress coping and explore the neural and neurotranscriptomic mechanisms underlying observed interaction effects of stress coping styles in zebrafish. We draw on principles and methodologies from behavioral ecology, neuroethology, molecular neuroscience, to bioinformatics. Additional details are found on the lab website (https://sites.google.com/a/unomaha.edu/wonglab/) or you can contact Dr. Ryan Wong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Students can apply to the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s (UNO) Psychology Department (Master’s or Ph.D., http://www.unomaha.edu/college-of-arts-and-sciences/psychology/acad...) or Biology Department (Master’s only, http://www.unomaha.edu/college-of-arts-and-sciences/biology/index.php). UNO is a metropolitan campus located near downtown Omaha in Nebraska. Consider joining the actively growing neuroscience community at UNO.
Strong applicants are eligible for Teaching Assistant Fellowships with tuition waivers, health insurance, and competitive stipends. The Wong lab currently has funds for graduate student support on a Research Assistantship. Interested students are highly encouraged to initiate contact with Dr. Ryan Wong to further discuss opportunities. Please e-mail a statement of interest and CV.
