The Toomey Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Tulsa (TU) is seeking applications for PhD positions animal coloration and color vision. Our work is broadly integrative, bringing together genomic, transcriptomic, molecular biological, biochemical, and behavioral approaches to investigate how birds see color, produce colorful displays, and how these traits have evolved. You can learn more about our research at: mbtoomey.net.
We seek applicants with an undergraduate degree in biology or a related field and research experience, ideally in molecular biology, but are open to students with experience in other aspects of biology. We aim to create an inclusive, diverse, and supportive lab atmosphere and are looking for individuals who enjoy collaboration.
If you are interested in joining the lab, please email Dr. Matthew Toomey (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a brief cover letter describing your research interests and experiences, how you are a good match for our lab, and a CV or resume that includes contact information for three references.
The Toomey Lab is part of the Department of Biological Sciences at TU which houses excellent research facilities including a fully functional user-run genomics core, confocal, SEM, and TEM microscopy, and animal colonies.
