Future graduate students can join the lab through one of several degree pathways, such as those offered by the Biology Department or the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Genetics and Genomics.
If you are thinking of a rotation or applying to TAMU to join the lab, write to Mahul (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We are recruiting 1-2 PostDocs! Apply HERE
If you are a graduate student in the final leg of your Ph.D. or a post-Ph.D. scientist interested in working with us, we would love to hear from you. Due to the lab’s research focus, we prefer applicants with (or will have by the time they start) a Ph.D. in genetics, genomics, evolutionary biology, bioinformatics, or a related field. However, candidates with a different research background than mentioned above are also welcome to apply. We are especially interested in applicants with expertise in evolutionary genomics, complex traits, genome editing (e.g., CRISPR), and computational genomics.
If you are interested in joining our lab, you can either directly submit your application through our formal job posting, or you can send an informal inquiry to email@example.com. If you are sending an inquiry, please send a summary of your research experience, career goals, how training in the Chakraborty Lab would help you achieve those goals and a CV.
Undergraduate students interested in joining the lab should have a biology, genetics, evolutionary biology, and/or computer science background. Students are expected to commit to working at least 10 hours per week in the lab (including evenings and weekends as needed) for at least one year. Students can receive course credit for working in our lab by enrolling in BIOL 291 or BIOL 491.
Please send a CV and a brief cover letter detailing your research experience and/or interests and your availability during the semester to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are recruiting a research assistant. APPLY HERE
Applicants must have (or will have by the time they start) a bachelor’s degree in genetics, biology, or a related field. Previous research experience in genetics is required. Previous experience with Drosophila genetics and molecular biology is strongly preferred. Experience with mosquito research would be a plus. Applicants who recently graduated and looking for research experience before applying to graduate school are encouraged to apply. Feel free to send informal inquiries to email@example.com.
