Graduate Fellowships

ASN Reddy
Graduate Fellowships in Molecular Plant Biology

        The Program in Molecular Plant Biology (PMPB) at Colorado
State University is offering graduate fellowships to highly motivated
Ph. D. applicants interested in Molecular Plant Biology.   The PMPB
is an interdepartmental program with over twenty faculty members from
four departments in two different colleges (College of Agricultural
Science and College of Natural Sciences).  Researchers in the PMPB
investigate fundamental and applied questions in plant biology using
molecular approaches.  Together, they have the expertise and a strong
reputation in all areas of molecular plant biology. The participating
faculty members are highly interactive and have research programs
funded by various federal, state and international agencies. The
questions asked cover the entire field of experimental plant biology
including developmental biology, plant pathology, stress physiology,
rhizosphere biology, phytoremediation, photosynthesis, transport and
evolution. In addition to fundamental research, several research
groups are engaged in research that may lead to the development of
plants with useful new traits in crop plants. The PMPB offers
research and training opportunities in all areas of molecular plant
biology including genetics, cell biology, biochemistry, molecular
sytematics, synthetic biology, and molecular and whole plant
physiology.  Genomic, proteomic and metabolomic approaches are
integrated in these research programs.  Colorado State University is
located at the foot of the beautiful Rocky Mountains, in the town of
Fort Collins, which enjoys one of the best climates in the USA and is
a perennial in the top 10 best places to live.  Geographically and
scientifically PMPB is in the perfect environment for exciting
research in plant biology.

        All students in the program are required to rotate through
three laboratories prior to choosing a home lab. At the end of the
first year, students select their advisors from any of four
departments in two colleges. During the first year, students in the
program are offered a research assistantship, tuition and other
benefits. To provide teaching experience, a number of teaching
assistantships are offered through different departments.  Students
in the PMPB will benefit from the highly active and interactive group
of plant faculty and the state-of-the art facilities to conduct
cutting-edge science in molecular plant biology.  To learn more about
