Currently, we do not have open funded positions for postdoctoral researchers in the laboratory. Postdoctoral positions are available, but require that the candidate obtain outside funding. If you are interested in postdoctoral research in left-right patterning and morphogenesis or examining the roles of cilia in development, please send a letter of inquiry with your CV to Dr. Burdine.
Graduate Rotation Students
We are always happy to have students rotate in the laboratory. Projects are generally tailored to suit your interests or to allow you to learn new techniques. No experience in lab work or developmental biology is required. We request only a willingness to learn and participate in the lab. We won't know if we have ful time positions for 2017 until grants come in, but this shouldn't stop you from rotating if you are interested in what we do.
If you are interested in rotating, please contact Dr. Burdine to schedule time to talk about projects.
Undergraduate Thesis - Development Related
We have projects available for interested undergraduates on the roles of cilia in development and on heart morphogenesis. The project will be developed with the interest of the student in mind. For example, if you are interested in scoliosis we will tailor the project to be more related to this aspect of our work. No laboratory experience is required. We request only a willingness to learn and a commitment toward making suitable progress.
Interested juniors or sophomores should contact Dr. Burdine to discuss this opportunity.
