1. Two Ph.D. Graduate Student positions in Molecular Biology

The lab is currently looking for 2-3 graduate students with strong self-motivation in molecular biology and good personality in creating harmonious and collaborative research environment.  If you are aggressive, please stop here!  The lab is equipped with a number of state-of-the-art instruments and technologies including in-house mass spectrometer, FPLC, kinetic analysis systems for proteins/enzymes, comprehensive protein gel electrophoresis and immunoblotting systems, Bio-Rad CFX qPCR, numerous in-house bioinformatics programs for genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics, high-throughput functional genomics, etc.  The students will join or take over several exciting research projects in the frontier of protein ubiquitylation studies.  The successful candidates are expected to publish the best science in high impact journals, present research in national and international meetings, and apply competitive graduate research awards.

2. One Master Graduate Student position in Bioinformatics

One master graduate student position specialized in bioinformatics, evolutionary biology, and population genomics training is open.

3. One postdoctoral or technician position is available

The lab is currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher or technician to join the NSF-CAREER project in protein ubiquitylation studies.

4. Application

For application consideration, candidates are recommended to send a resume (curriculum vitae), a description of research statement including prior research experience, career goal, and expectation of graduate studies, transcripts, English test scores, and three recommendation letters to Dr. Zhihua Hua by email at hua@ohio.edu.

Please also see PBIO-MCB (https://www.ohio.edu/cas/plantbio/grad/mcb-pbio-phd-admissions.cfm) and MCB (https://www.ohio.edu/mcb/future-students/apply.cfm) for the minimum admission requirement of both graduate programs.  For international students, a TOEFL score of 95 internet-based is REQUIRED for both programs.

Due to the high cost of Plant Omics studies, our lab is actively looking for extramural funding resources.

Group members in the lab are strongly recommended and mentored to apply for independent funding opportunities.

Visiting scholars with self-financial support, volunteers searching for bioinformatics/omics research experience, and generous industrial collaborative/partnership research programs are particularly acceptable.
