We do both experimental and computational research, and combine those techniques whenever possible. We expect students and postdocs to become familiar with both low-throughput and high-throughput technologies while in the lab. You don't need to already know how to program as well as pipette; you just need to be enthusiastic to learn. People with diverse scientific backgrounds—everything from RNA biochemistry to statistical genetics to computer science—are welcome.
Graduate students from the Molecular & Cellular Biology Program, Department of Genome Sciences, Medical Scientist Training Program, and Institute for Public Health Genetics at the University of Washington can join the lab. Students from other departments may be able to join as well; please contact us with any questions.
Rotation students are welcome.
Please send a CV (in PDF format), names of at least two references, and a description of your research interests. It's especially helpful if you describe how your previous research experience may dovetail with the lab's ongoing work.
Proposals for new research questions are always welcome. We're constantly on the lookout for new areas where RNA processing may be unexpectedly important.
