Rosenberg lab at Stanford University

Joining the lab

We are seeking new members at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels. Potential members of the lab are expected to have training in quantitative sciences as well as biological sciences, and to be interested in research in biology and genetics that incorporates mathematical, statistical, and computational approaches.

Undergraduates. Past undergraduate members of the lab have included students majoring in mathematics as well as students in biological anthropology, molecular biology, and evolutionary biology. Students have participated in projects of different lengths, ranging from a summer to multiple academic years. Inquiries regarding undergraduate positions in the lab should begin with an email to Noah Rosenberg about your interests. Read more...

Graduate students. PhD students in the lab have typically completed a rigorous undergraduate degree in bioinformatics, computer science, mathematics, physics, statistics, or other quantitative sciences; or in biology with a significant quantitative emphasis. Students in the lab have been part of the Biology, Genetics, and Computational & Mathematical Engineering PhD programs. Applications in Biology proceed through the Ecology, Evolution, and Population Biology program within the Department of Biology. For students specifically interested in the group, it is advisable to write to Noah Rosenberg in advance to indicate that your application will be arriving.

Postdocs. Interested candidates should write to Noah Rosenberg with a CV, research statement, and contact information for three references.

High school interns and visiting undergraduates. The lab welcomes inquiries from interns and visitors at all levels, including high school students, undergraduates, and visiting graduate students. Most visiting positions involve a summer experience. Inquiries should begin with an email to Noah Rosenberg regarding your specific interest in the lab and the fields of study in which the lab pursues research. It is recommended that inquiries take place with considerable lead time in advance of the proposed research experience.

Research topics in the lab span a wide range, and interest in particular areas fluctuates over time. Trainee projects draw upon the lab's full set of interests, with a bias toward topics that are more current within the group. Potential lab members are encouraged to examine our general research interests as well as our recent publications, theory research, and areas of particular current interest.
