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.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter describing their past research experience and research interests, an electronic copy of their CV, and complete contact information for three references to Pam Kreeger (kreeger at wisc.edu)
We accept graduate student applications through the
Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology, and Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Programs. We look for applicants with previous wet-lab experience in molecular-cellular biology, genomics-proteomics, cell-tissue engineering, or BioMEMs. Students with a 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
We do not have any openings for research staff at this time.
