The Laboratory of Ecological and Adaptational Physiology (LEAP) at Baylor University is seeking applicants for up to two PhD graduate assistantships starting Fall 2015.  Applicants should apply to the PhD program in Biology (http://www.baylor.edu/biology/index.php?id=68415).  We are particularly interested in applicants who will structure their PhD research within one or more of the following (or related) ongoing research areas in the lab:

1)            Muscle/Lipid Physiology
2)            Endocrinology
3)            Mammalian Energetics

Baylor affords outstanding research and teaching facilities.  The LEAP is housed in the 500,000 sq. ft Baylor Sciences Building

Baylor offers excellent financial support for qualified applicants.  Annual stipends range from $21,000-28,000, with the higher stipends awarded to top applicants.  Stipends are awarded to students for up to 5 years, assuming the student remains in good standing in the department.  Admission also includes full tuition remission (up to a 20 credits per year), health insurance benefits (80% of cost of premium covered; cost to student ~$450/y in 2015), and additional funding opportunities to travel to professional meetings.

Applicants should possess an M.S. degree or substantial undergraduate research experience, GRE Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning scores at or above the 70th percentile, GRE Analytical Writing score of 4.5 or greater, and undergraduate and graduate (if applicable) GPA of 3.5 or higher.

If you meet these criteria and are considering applying, please send an email describing your background and interests to Dr. Stephen J. Trumble (stephen_trumble at baylor.edu).  No application will be considered without previous interaction by email and telephone/skype with Dr. Trumble.  Complete applications need to be submitted to the Graduate School by January 25, 2015 to be eligible for all-expenses paid campus visit for the most qualified applicants.  Applications will not be considered after February 15, 2015.
