Dec 2021: Two open positions! For full consideration, apply for Dec 19th 2021
(1) Research assistant with mCAFE-s
Curious about how plants/microbes interact below the ground? Or how we can harness that conversation to develop sustainable bioenergy crops? Combine facbricated ecosystems + engineered synthetic communities as part of mCAFEs
(2) Postdoc with JBEI
Do you have expertise in monocot transformation? Want to develop improved sorghum tools? Come use them to unpick how sorghum secondary cell wall is synthesized using an inducible system as part of JBEI
There are many different resources for where to find out about potential graduate/postdoctoral fellowship, including from UC Berkeley. Also see our links page. We welcome UCB graduate students who are interested in rotating with us.
We have a number of opportunities for paid internships for students, particularly over the summer. These include for high-school students (via the Biotech Partners program), and undergraduates from two- and four-year institutions (via the CCI and SULI programs respectively). The Biochemical Society also has Summer Vacation Studentships which can be used in my lab. We also welcome undergraduate students who want to undertake research projects for course credit.
