The Cartwright Lab at the University of Kansas is seeking graduate
students (masters or PhD) to work on cnidarian genomics. Our lab focuses
on many aspects of cnidarian evolution, including phylogenomics and
development. In particular, we are seeking someone to characterize
genomes and transcriptomes of parasitic myxozoans and their
relatives. Additional projects include applying CRISPR technologies
to cnidarian model systems, hydrozoan phylogenomics and comparative
gene expression.

Student must be highly motivated, have a demonstrated ability to work
independently and show a keen interest in cnidarians, phylogenetics,
developmental processes and evolution.

The EEB department at the University of Kansas guarantees five years of
support (two years for masters students). If interested, please contact
