Applying to the lab


Information for potential graduate students

We are currently accepting graduate students. If you are interested in genetics, signal transduction, microbiota, gene-environment interactions, and metabolism, this is the place for you! We have several different projects in the lab, check out our research page or make an appointment to discuss with us and meet the lab. We accept students from the Department of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences and from the Medical Sciences program but you don't have to wait to apply to come and talk to us. We look for people who are self-motivated, and who want to learn. You don't have to come with C. elegans experience - we will teach you everything you need to know. 

Information for post-docs

When applying please include a statement of interest - which project you are interested in, or if you would like to develop your own projects. Please send a CV and the names of two people who could provide references.
