Our lab can accept doctoral students who have been admitted into the Department of Biomedical Engineering or the Cell and Molecular Biology graduate program at the University of Texas at Austin. You should apply to the program which most closely aligns with your undergraduate preparation. Graduate positions are fully funded by research and teaching fellowships; graduate students generally serve as TA's for 1-2 academic semesters as part of their degree requirements.
All of the projects in our lab integrate experimental wet lab studies and computational analysis/modeling. Individuals with interests in tumor biology, molecular cell biology, bioengineering, synthetic and systems biology, as well as those with a background in mathematics and modeling may be well-positioned to contribute. Regardless of specific field, we're always happy to hear from creative and enthusiastic problem solvers.
If you are interested in discussing a rotation in the lab, please email Dr. Brock with your CV and a brief description of how our lab fits into your training and scientific goals.
