Postdoctoral research associate
Postdoctoral positions are available to study the structures and functions of proteins involved in (1) repair of stalled replication forks and (2) non-canonical base excision repair pathways. Experience in mechanistic biochemistry and/or structural biology techniques (macromolecular X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, SAXS, or NMR) is preferred, but not required. Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and names of 3 references to

Graduate research
We are actively recruiting graduate students to join on-going NIH and NSF funded projects on various aspects of DNA repair. Graduate students from the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program (IGP), the Chemical and Physical Biology Program, and the Department of Biological Sciences, are welcome to rotate through the lab at any time.

Undergraduate research
Undergraduate students may perform directed and independent research in the lab for course credit. See the Department of Biological Sciences and Program in Biochemistry & Chemical Biology websites for details. Undergraduates and work-study students may also work in the lab as paid research assistants or technicians.
