Our lab is at the intersection of multiple disciplines, and we encourage the participation of individuals from a variety of educational backgrounds, including biology, chemistry, and engineering.
Qualified candidates should contact Pam Kreeger about potential employment opportunities. Candidates should be interested in the study of signaling networks in cancer and other diseases. Requirements include a Ph.D. in bioengineering, molecular or cell biology, or related field, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work effectively with team members in multiple disciplines.
We accept graduate student applications through the
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cell and Molecular Biology, Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology, and Molecular and Environmental Toxicology Programs. We look for applicants with previous wet-lab experience in molecular-cellular biology, genomics-proteomics, cell-tissue engineering, or BioMEMs. Students with background in bioinformatics, computational biology, or mathematics are also encouraged to apply, but be aware that we do not currently have any thesis projects that are purely computational. Please see the individual program websites for more information on their requirements and application process.
We consider undergraduates from all departments at UW-Madison but look most seriously at sophomores who are interested in finding a research lab to work in for several semesters. Expected time commitments are 10-15 hours per week during the academic year, preferably in blocks of 3-5 hours at a time. Space is dependent on the availability of graduate/post-doc mentors. Undergraduates interested in conducting research with the lab should submit the following materials electronically to Dr. Kreeger for consideration:
1) A resume, including work history and references
2) An unofficial academic transcript
3) A brief statement about their interest in working in the lab
