Working in the Loewe Lab
Here are open positions with instructions for how to apply to work with Laurence Loewe in the Evolutionary Systems Biology Group at the Wisconsin Institute of Discovery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Are you interested in our research and are looking for a position as a graduate student or as a postdoctoral research associate? If yes, you might want to explore the possibility of research in our group. We offer a very simulating environment and work hard at pushing the boundaries of science in our area. If this fascinates you and you have a specific idea about how you could contribute to our group, we would like to hear from you. If we think this is a good fit, we will work with you to apply for funding. If you are looking for postdoc funding, you can apply at various places for your own fellowship (e.g. NIH, NSF) or write a grant with the principal investigator. Graduate students and postdocs are expected to develop and implement their own independent research programs that interface with ongoing efforts in creative new ways.
In principle, undergrads can either work on predefined projects (listed below if available) or propose their own projects like grad students. If we think it fits well, then we will do what we can to accommodate such initiatives. Please think about how your interests and skills might fit in with the rest of the group before you send an email. This lab is computational only, meaning you will not improve any wet-lab skills you might have (unless you collaborate with other labs ). You will need to be able to tame computers at various levels if you want to succeed in our group.
Here are the current open positions:
- Grad student and Postdoc: No open position at the moment. If you consider taking a fellowship to this lab, let's discuss potential topics.
- Student jobs for credit or for experience:
- C++ programmers
- Anyone understanding HDF5
Please find details and updates on the availability of these jobs below.
If you happen to have experience in using HDF5 please send us a note, we may be very interested in working together.
There are various student projects that could be done for credit or for experience or for pay. At the moment we are looking for:
- C++ programmers: If you are good with C++ code, we want to hear from you. Please detail your experience.
If you want to work on these or other projects in our group, please send your CV and explain what you want to do and why this is interesting for you.
