We welcome applications from prospective postdoctoral scholars and graduate students and will consider them on a continuing basis depending on fit to the lab, available space and funding.
Our group is experimental and computational. We carry out wet lab experimentation as well as wet-dry projects. We seek highly motivated and creative scientists to join our group. Our lab has a great mix of collaborative scientists from a range of backgrounds including genetics/genomics and quantitative fields like bioinformatics and computational biology.
|Postdocs||To apply for a postdoctoral position, please email Najib the following: (i) a CV; (ii) a summary describing your research skills and experience; (iii) a statement of your goals and research interests for the postdoctoral training; and (iv) contact details for references. Postdoctoral applicants are expected to have a background in a relevant biological field or to come from a quantitative field (such as statistics or computer science) and have a demonstrated interest in genomics, bioinformatics and/or host-pathogen interactions. Strong programming and bioinformatics skills are a decided plus.|
|PhD Applicants||PhD applications should go through one of the Biological Sciences (BISI) graduate programs: Molecular and Cellular Biology (MOCB) or Computational Biology, Bioinformatics and Genomics (CBBG). There is a single application deadline each fall. Pre-application inquiries are not needed as students are accepted into the lab only following acceptance into the program and a successful rotation.|
|Lab Rotation (Graduate Students)||Please contact Najib to discuss. We welcome students from the MOCB and CBBG graduate programs.|
|Undergraduates||Undergraduates should have a good command of concepts in molecular biology, genetics and cell biology. To join us, please email Najib the following: (i) a copy of your academic transcript; and (ii) a summary describing your research interests and any experience you may have.|
|High School Students||Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate high school internship requests in our wet lab because of our work with bloodborne pathogens.|
