Date Available: Spring 2018

GRA Position #524 - Crop Science

One graduate research assistantship (PhD) is available for a project involving the development of molecular breeding resources for increased grain carotenoids in sorghum. The research will involve laboratory studies as well as field studies that could include evaluating carotenoid diversity, identifying QTL, and developing genetic markers. The student will work as part of a collaborative team involving other areas of crop science. The candidate will complete coursework necessary for a PhD degree in Agronomy with a thesis topic related to crop science.
