We are seeking highly motivated full-time graduate students to study molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration. Protein mis-folding and aggregation are central events in nearly all neurodegenerative disorders. We have established a novel technology platform using genetic and genomic approaches to uncover human genes that promote or reduce aggregation and toxicity of disease-associated proteins.

Interested candidates need to apply through the Biological Sciences Masters of Science Program (https://science-math.wright.edu/biology/master-of-science-in-biological-sci…). Students graduated from the program have successfully joined Ph.D programs or medical schools for higher education or started professional careers in industry, government, education or research organizations.

Graduate teaching assistantships and Tuition Scholarships are available on a competitive basis. Applicants are ranked based on their prior GPA, relevant experience and letters of recommendation. Students awarded assistantships are given a stipend and a tuition waiver. Stipends are approximately $13,000 for a 10-month contract, with opportunities for summer funding. Assistantships are available for two years pending progress on research. Candidates are encouraged to apply early to be considered for financial support.

Admission Requirements
 Complete an application form to The Graduate School. http://www.wright.edu/sogs/
 Have earned bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university.
 Request all colleges/universities previously attended to send one official transcript directly to The Graduate School.
