PhD and MS Student in Mastitis and Mammary Physiology

The OARDC Mastitis and Mammary Physiology Laboratory led by Dr. Enger in the Department of Animal Sciences at Ohio State University is seeking applications for a full time MS and PhD student. They are seeking a highly motivated, inquisitive student interested in investigating intramammary infection’s effect on mammary gland function. The student would be responsible for conducting in vivo mastitis experiments and evaluating collected mammary tissues using microscopy and molecular techniques. Experiments will utilize both applied and basic research methods to answer fundamental questions pertaining to mammary physiology, and mastitis pathology.  

Interested individuals should contact Dr. Enger ( and describe their research interests, provide their CV, and a writing sample, and unofficial transcripts.
