WE ARE RECRUITING!
UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS (Spring 2023)
I will be recruiting students to work on various projects related to flowers starting in SP 23. If you are interested in joining the lab, contact me at the following e-mail address: monica-dot-borghi-at-usu-dot-edu. Students who work in the lab can gain research credits via BIOL 5800 or CHEM 4800. Visit USU Biology Undergraduate Research to obtain authorization to add BIOL 5800 to your curriculum or USU Chemistry & Biochemistry for CHEM 4800.
GRADUATE STUDENT (Spring 2023)
I am recruiting one Master's student with the possibility to transition to a Ph.D. The potential project includes analysis of transcriptomics data from Arabidopsis flowers followed by validation experiments using T-DNA mutant lines, analysis of gene and protein expression and localization, and measurements of flower metabolites. Candidates with experience or a strong interest in bioinformatics are encouraged to apply. Students will be funded through a combination of teaching assistantships and PI funds. Before applying, interested students must review the requirements for admission (https://www.usu.edu/biology/students/graduate/prospective-students). Qualified candidates are strongly encouraged to contact monica-dot-borghi-at-usu-dot-edu with a letter of interest, their CV, and contact information for references.
POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER (current)
I am recruiting one Postdoctoral Researcher with experience in plant molecular biology of model (Arabidopsis) and non-model plants (blueberry and beans), analysis of RNAseq, and proficiency in R or Python. Previous experience with analysis of metabolites will be taken in strong consideration. The researcher will be responsible for coordinating and running experiments independently, contributing to the research planning, manuscript and proposal writing and supervising undergraduate and graduate students. Qualified candidates are strongly encouraged to contact monica-dot-borghi-at-usu-dot-edu with a letter of interest, their CV, and contact information for references.
