Lab Positions

Graduate Students

We are always looking out for exceptional and creative graduate students from a variety of backgrounds. Please email Joe with your CV and research interests. Prospective Graduate Students can apply to our lab through the Biomedical Science Training Program (BSTP) or the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP). Email me in advance of the application deadline whenever possible for more info.

A commitment of at least two years (including a summer) is recommended to allow students to develop valuable laboratory skills and contribute meaningfully to ongoing research projects. Undergraduate researchers can earn course credit for their work, and while academic year positions are on a volunteer basis, there are excellent opportunities for summer funding. I encourage students to explore these resources:
