    Metabolic phenotype and individual optimization of egg size. This projects will utilize our captive-breeding population of zebra finches (Taeniopygia guttata) and experimental manipulation of egg size (see Physiological and Biochemical Zoology 80:293–305). I am looking for a student with a strong academic background (GPA >3.0), evidence of undergraduate research experience and a genuine interest in integrating cell/physiology and evolutionary biology. Experience banding, blood sampling and lab work (e.g. hormone/metabolite assays) would be an advantage). Start date ideally September 2024 (or possible January 2025).
