Dr. Daniel Voytas Lab is seeking to welcome TWO sophomore or junior undergraduate students to join the lab. These positions are for students who are thinking about a research career in biotech/life sciences. Please note, depending on what position interests you, there are different contacts.
Projects include developing new genome editing technologies and engineering photosynthesis to improve yield and abiotic stress tolerance in C3 plants. Students who are accepted will gain skills in:
If you are interested please contact Degao Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org ) with your CV to apply for an interview.
Projects involve cutting edge genetic engineering, virology and synthetic biology in crop plants. Students who are accepted will gain skills in:
There are several potential projects that are span modifying the pathways with which plants make chemicals, the developmental programs that control plant shape, or re-engineering plant viruses to rapidly generate transgenic plants. The end goal of all the projects is to develop technologies to combat hunger and malnutrition around the world. Watch a video describing some of the work and an introductory panel discussion about plant synthetic biology.
