The Sinclair Lab at UWO
|PhD or MSc positions in physiology of insect freeze tolerance|
The Sinclair lab at Western University is recruiting domestic graduate students to work on insect freeze tolerance. We take an integrative approach to our science, so there will be opportunities to develop a project at various levels of biological organization ranging from evolutionary to molecular, and we like to be adventurous in our choice of methods, so many techniques are on the table.
The Sinclair lab offers a dynamic, diverse, well-resourced, and highly successful mentoring environment, with opportunities for international travel and collaborations, and lots of encouragement to develop side projects, leadership, and formal and informal mentoring skills. Successful graduate students in the Sinclair lab work hard and give generously of their time and expertise to their lab mates. We give and receive honest and constructive feedback, and are committed to diversity and developing broad career-relevant skills.
If you have a background in physiology, entomology, molecular biology or ecology, and would like to freeze bugs, please check us out!

Applications should include a cover letter, a copy of your most recent university transcript (unofficial is acceptable), your CV, and the names and contact details of two referees who can speak to your research experience and aptitude. Please email them as a single .pdf file to Dr. Sinclair at firstname.lastname@example.org by 3pm EST on Monday May 14th, 2018.This opportunity is available only to Canadian Citizens and Permanent Residents.
