We have a new lab member – my first graduate student – Shawna Marie Peer joined the lab in mid-May. She will officially start her PhD program on a fellowship starting in August 2015. Shawna completed her B.A from Augustana College (Illinois) in 2012 and then went on to complete her M.S in Animal Science from Texas A&M University in May 2015. Shawna will be working on understanding the functional genetic basis of muscle myopathies in birds.
Welcome aboard Shawna!
In June of this year I accepted a tenure track in the Department of Poultry Science at Texas A&M University, College Station. My new position will be Assistant Professor of Avian Genomics. I start in my new position on January 1st 2015, less than two weeks away. I am very excited about this new professional upgrade.
Three positions are open in my lab – two PhD positions for start date of Fall 2015, and one Postdoctoral position for start date in Spring 2015. Please contact me for further details.
