Positions and Contact Info
We are always interested in highly motivated people that have a strong interest in research. We have several exciting projects available to study post-transcriptional gene regulation and RNA editing in both the model organism, C. elegans and mammalian cell culture.
Undergraduate students: We are happy to involve undergraduate students in research projects. Interested students should be willing to commit 10-15 hours per week in lab, interact with all lab members and lead an independent project (don't worry--no prior experience needed, we will train you on what you need to do for your project). Undergraduate students can use this experience for an honors thesis, research course credits (ex.: M450, L490) or on a voluntary basis. We also accept students from a number of summer research programs, including Women in STEM LLC, Stem Summer Scholars, and Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP).
Graduate students: Prospective Ph.D. students interested in joining the Hundley lab should apply to the Indiana University Graduate school through either the Cell, Molecular and Cancer Biology program, the Genome, Cell and Developmental Biology program or the Interdisciplinary Biochemistry graduate program. Application deadlines are usually December 1. If you are already an accepted Ph.D. student and are interested in rotating in the Hundley lab, send Heather an email and/or stop by her office in the Biology Building (327B). We have several open projects that combine molecular biology/genomics, biochemistry and computational biology.
We also enjoy hosting M.S. students from the Biotechnology program and are happy to discuss potential one year intensive projects for those students.
Postdoctoral Fellows: We're always interested in speaking with prospective postdoc candidates. If you are finishing up your Ph.D. within the next ~12 months and are interested in joining us, please email Heather with a cover letter outlining your relevant expertise and scientific interests, a CV and contact information for three references. Please also give some thought to what your goals are for the postdoc period and how our lab can help you meet those goals--feel free to communicate those in your initial email.
We are located in the Biology Building (we moved to the third floor! Room 327) at
