Program in Ecological Genomics:
Ecological Genomics: Genes in Ecology and Ecology in Genes
The Ecological Genomics Visiting Scholar Program provides sabbatical opportunities at Kansas State University for permanent faculty researchers interested in Ecological Genomics. Our multi-disciplinary Institute seeks to understand responses of organisms to their natural environment by combining functional genomic and ecological approaches. Applicants should contact the PI of a potential host laboratory at Kansas State University (http://www.k-state.edu/ecogen/resgroup.html) to explore space availability and overlap in research interests. The start-date and duration of appointments are flexible. Visiting scholars will have access to excellent university resources including Konza Prairie Biological Station LTER site (http://climate.konza.ksu.edu/), Division of Biology infrastructure, and gene analysis facilities such as the KSU Gene Expression Facility (http://www.k-state.edu/gene-exp/).
Visiting Scholars will receive a generous stipend and a substantial monetary
supplement to support research endeavors. Recipients are expected to
present a research seminar of their work. Application instructions
and information about the Ecological Genomics Program at Kansas State
University can be found at:
http://www.k-state.edu/ecogen/. Review of applications will
begin July 1, 2006, and will continue quarterly until program
resources are committed. The Visiting Scholar Program is
sponsored by a Kansas State University Targeted Excellence Award in
