(Recruiting and starting fall 2019)
Our lab has many projects involving plant laboratory work, genome sequencing, field experiments, and bioinformatic analyses, from undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc levels.
We strive to recruit the most creative and motivated individuals -- of any nationality, race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, veteran status, or disability -- and help them when necessary to apply for individual funding.
Informal contacts are welcome, just write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org describing your background and interests. We deeply value diverse thinking, so international researchers of all backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply!
Do you want to help us grow hundreds of plant mutants with their own unique (and sometimes never seen) plant forms? Do you want to learn how to mine public genomic, climatic, and satellite databases to learn about biodiversity? Write me an email to chat about potential quarter or summer projects.
Prospective graduate students
Prospective graduate students need to apply to Stanford's Biosciences PhD programs (see https://biology.stanford.edu/academics/phd-program/admissions). Contact me to rotate or join the lab, or just to seek for advice. Applications are due late November each year.
