PhD Training Opportunities in Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology Available

Students interested in pursuing a PhD or DVM/PhD within the Department of Anatomy and Physiology at Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine currently are being recruited.

The department faculty are engaged in research in many different fields including but not limited to: aging, alcohol dependence, anatomy (gross and microscopic), biomedical nanotechnology, cancer, cystic fibrosis, epithelial physiology, hearing loss, heart failure, kinesiology, male infertility, Parkinson’s Disease, stem cell biology, teaching methods, pharmacokinetics, pharmacology, and toxicology.

Kansas State University embraces diversity, and promotes inclusion in every sector of the institution. The university actively seeks students whose commitments and contributions will advance the university's commitment to the Principles of Community.

Ideally we are seeking students with a bachelors or masters degree in physiology or anatomy or a closely related discipline with demonstrable prior research experience and appropriate evidence of scholarship in the form of poster presentations and publications. Students will undergo a rotation in two or more professor’s labs and choose a mentor and project within the first year of their study.  

Interested? Please contact Dr. Peying Fong (pfong@vet.k-state.edu) or Dr. Rob DeLong (robertdelong@ksu.edu) for further information, or apply online https://www.vet.k-state.edu/education/anatomy-physiology/academics/application-procedure.html and concurrently send an email with letter of interest, transcripts and a resume/CV listing any publications to Gail Eyestone, (geyestone@vet.k-state.edu, 785-532-4503).
