JOINING THE BERGMANN LAB AS A POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER
PhD students are encouraged to contact me about postdoctoral opportunities in the lab at least one year in advance of their desired start date. I value independent, creative scientists and encourage you to write with ideas you might have for projects related to any aspect of stomatal development and patterning. Postdocs are expected to apply for independent fellowships, although occasionally, there will be grant funds to support specific projects. By Stanford University policy, candidates should have less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience. When inquiring about positions, please email a statement of research interests and professional goals, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and contact information for three references to: Prof. Dominique Bergmann (firstname.lastname@example.org).
JOINING THE BERGMANN LAB AS A GRADUATE STUDENT
I am currently accepting graduate students. The Graduate Bioscience Admissions program coordinates all graduate admissions in the biological sciences at Stanford. Please consult their website for the current application procedures. If you are interested in joining my lab, be sure to a list me as a potential advisor on your application form and indicate “Biology” as your home program choice.
JOINING THE BERGMANN LAB AS AN UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT
Undergraduates interested in cell biology, developmental biology, signaling or plant biology are especially encouraged to inquire about joining the lab. Please email Dr. Bergmann with your interests and we’ll arrange a meeting to discuss projects. Also, check out some of the opportunities for undergraduate research in the department and at the Carnegie Institution. Sophomores can also apply for a summer research position in the lab through the VPUE Program. Students from Foothill College are encouraged to look at our work-study positions, during the school year and the Carnegie program for the summer.
