    Two funded Ph.D. positions in plant development

    We are seeking candidates to join our team to work on two independent Ph.D. projects:

    1. “Hormonal control of stamen filament elongation in Arabidopsis thaliana.” Using confocal microscopy, RNA-Seq, and fluorescent reporters we will reconstruct 3D growth dynamics and anatomy of this organ. Biophysical, hormonal, and genetic manipulations will provide insight into how the hormones act. This project will be held in collaboration with Dr Jason Reed (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA), Dr Clay Wight, and Dr Bastiaan Bargmann (Virginia Tech, USA).

    2. “Growth analysis of body-axis regulators during radial and bilateral style morphogenesis.” We will study cellular dynamics underlying the 3D formation of a radial style compared to bilateral mutants. This project will be in collaboration with Dr Laila Moubayidin and Dr Richard Smith (John Innes Center, UK).

    We are looking for highly motivated candidates who are strongly interested in plant developmental biology. The applicant should have the ability to solve scientific problems, good interpersonal skills, and be able to work in an interdisciplinary environment. Experience in microscopy and molecular biology is an asset. Diversity is considered a strength within the lab and all qualified applicants will receive equal consideration.

    Our lab (https://kierzkowski-lab.com/) is a part of the Plant Science Research Institute at the University of Montreal, Canada. The Institute is equipped with all core facilities necessary for this project including confocal microscopy, an image analysis platform, and a molecular lab. The bilingual city of Montreal is a vibrant university center and cultural capital of Quebec.

    Interested applicants should send a CV, a motivation letter (one-page maximum - clearly specifying your scientific interest), as well as names and contact of 2 referees to daniel.kierzkowski@umontreal.ca.

Red oak species are key components of these ecosystems, but are threatened by current management practices. Studies are  needed to test potential sustainable management practices for GTRs. The MS student’s thesis research will include field studies and possibly controlled environment studies to better understand the interactive effects of temperature, flood, and dormancy on oak health and root physiology. Studies will answer  questions that are not only key to improving GTR management, but also invaluable for restoration of  bottomland hardwood forests with natural hydroperiods. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to learn relevant research techniques, and to interact with representatives from state and federal conservation agencies working to develop scientifically informed management recommendations for GTR forests. 

    Requirements: Applicants must have a 2.7 overall undergraduate GPA or 3.0 GPA in the last 60 semester  hours of undergraduate courses and satisfactory GRE scores. A B.S. degree in a natural resources-related  field is also required. Applicants must have a valid U.S. driver’s license or obtain the same within 60 days  of starting employment. Overnight travel is required as well as the ability to work outdoors in all weather conditions.  

    Location and Facilities: The College of Forestry, Agriculture & Natural Resources is located in Monticello, Arkansas in the southeastern portion of the state. The Arkansas Forest Resources Center is also headquartered here, and is administered by the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture. The Arkansas Forest Resources Center is the research and extension arm for forest-based programs within the State. Additionally, the US Forest Service Arkansas Forestry Sciences Lab is located at the College. The  College and Center maintain several state-of-the-art laboratories (hydrology, soil, quantitative analysis, silviculture, wildlife ecology & management) available for graduate research and education.

    Territory Acknowledgement 

    We acknowledge and respect the Songhees, Esquimalt and WSÁNEĆ peoples on whose traditional territory the  university stands and whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. We invite applicants to  watch the “Welcome to the Territory” video and to visit the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ Nations’  websites to learn more about these vibrant communities. To learn more about the Indigenous community on  campus, please see the Indigenous Academic and Community Engagement (IACE) office’s website. 

    Indigenization and Decolonization at UVic 

    The University of Victoria is committed to the ongoing work of decolonizing and Indigenizing the campus  community both inside and outside the classroom. UVic released our second Indigenous Plan in 2023 and the  Faculty of Science has drafted its Indigenization Implementation Strategy (2022-2026) as we prepare ourselves  for the work ahead. Decolonization and Indigenization are integral aspects of the 2023 UVic Strategic Plan and  the 2022 Faculty of Science Strategic Plan

    To advance our work on Indigenization and decolonization, the Faculty of Science is excited to invite  Indigenous applicants for three faculty positions in any field of Science. The three available positions are at the tenure-track assistant professor level and are cross-posted across our six departments: Biochemistry &  Microbiology, Biology, Chemistry, Earth & Ocean Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics, and Physics & Astronomy

    UVic has a vibrant Indigenous community with over 1,400 Indigenous students as of 2023 and over 65  Indigenous faculty. In 2022, Qwul’sih’yah’maht, Dr. Robina Thomas was appointed as the first Vice President  Indigenous and she is leading the work of decolonization at UVic. In the same year, Marion Buller, renowned  legal scholar and the first First Nations woman to be appointed as a judge in British Columbia, has been  appointed chancellor of the University of Victoria. Not surprisingly, UVic has been ranked #1 in Canada for  promoting Indigenous visibility (Maclean’s 2022). 

    The Faculty of Science at UVic 

    The six departments in the Faculty of Science at UVic host over 140 research-active faculty members, 400  graduate students and several dozen professional researchers and support staff. All of us are deeply committed  to diversification across our ranks, particularly, although not limited to people who are Indigenous, racialized,  disabled, and/or have marginalized sexualities and gender identities. 

    We educate 3000 undergraduate students in 30 different degree programs, and confer degrees from the  bachelor to doctoral level. The Faculty of Science also supports six research centres - from forest biology to particle physics – and is host to 12 Canada Research Chairs. The University of Victoria is ranked #3 in the world  for climate action (2023 THE Impact Rankings), and UVic is ranked 5th in Canada and #220 globally for research  impact across all sciences (2023 Times Higher Education). All high rankings are in no small part due to the  research and education conducted by researchers and instructors in our six departments.  The UVic Faculty of Science is the destination of choice for curious minds.
