  • Research Opportunity: Evolution of Globin Genes in Red-blooded and White-blooded Antarctic Notothenioid Fish

The project will involve bioinformatic and lab bench analyses. Bioinformatically, genes (hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytoglobins, neuroglobin, and globin x) will be studied for their genomic conservation among Notothenioids, their gene and protein sequence evolution using phylogenetic tree reconstructions, and for signs of relaxed or purifying selection to understand their rate of evolution. In addition, lab bench work will involve studying the gene expression patterns of each gene by quantitative RT-PCR in a panel of tissues from temperate Notothenioids species, Antarctic red-blooded notothenioids, and Antarctic white-blooded icefishes. See attached information sheet for additional details.
How to Apply: Email Thomas Desvignes (desvignes@uoneuro.uoregon.edu) and John Postlethwait (jpostle@uoneuro.uoregon.edu), including a C.V. or resume (which should include your previous research experience and any relevant coursework) and a personal statement outlining why you would be a good candidate for this position. Qualified applicants will be contacted directly for further information and a follow-up interview.

We seek an undergraduate student employee to assist with program activities related to the GH minor during the 2019-20 academic year. Specific activities may include: developing content for program website, updating website, event planning following the OCIAS procedures, designing communications materials (brochures, flyers, etc.), outreach to students, developing a blog and blog content, attending GH program meetings as needed, and other administrative activities. Event planning will be done in accordance with OCIAS policy, and under the supervision of OCIAS staff.

  • Deadline approaching! Research Opportunity: Wood Chip Fungi

Application Deadline: October, 6, 2019
If you are a student interested in ecology, consider applying to work on a research project supervised by Bitty Roy (UO) in conjunction with the local mushroom group, the Cascade Mycological Society (CMS). The project involves learning about the fungi that breakdown wood chips as part of our work on the Fungi of Lane County.  Wood chips are essentially “fast food” for fungi and they are a readily available substrate in towns, which also means that this is a good place to look for species that are new to our area. See attached information sheet for additional details.
How to Apply: Write to Prof. Bitty Roy at bit@uoregon.edu with the following information:

    1. Tell us a little about why you find mushrooms, or fungi in general, interesting.

    2. What’s your background in mycology?  Are you currently taking, or have you taken, mycology at the UO or the mushroom class at LCC?
