Interested in joining the King lab?
We are a collaborative and creative group of scientists with diverse backgrounds and interests, but united by our drive to reconstruct animal origins. Our expertise spans from evolution, ecology, and comparative genomics to microbiology, cell biology, and biochemistry.
- We invite applications from talented and motivated postdoctoral candidates with relevant experience in genetics/genomics, host-microbe interactions, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, computational biology, evolution, protistology and related fields. Applications are reviewed on February 1, June 1, and October 1 of each year. To apply, please follow the instructions here: Post-doc application process.
- Candidates for graduate study should apply either through the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (MCB) or the Microbiology program in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology (PMB). Both programs allow graduate students to rotate through multiple labs in the first year, providing a diversity of research experiences prior to selecting a lab. For application information and more details about the graduate program, visit the MCB Graduate Program web site or the PMB Microbiology Program web site.
- We invite motivated undergraduates with previous experience in genetics, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, or computational biology to apply for a position in the lab through the URAP program. A minimum commitment of 12 hours per week, spanning two semesters and a summer, is expected. When available, openings for undergraduate research positions will be posted at the URAP web site.
