Join The Eisen Lab!

Travel the world. Meet interesting flies. Grind them up in Trizol.

If you are interested in pursuing some of the most interesting unsolved problems in biology with a great bunch of people using a combination of cutting edge experimental and computational approaches and have a deep interest in evolution... Then Join Us!

Potential postdoctoral fellows: Please send a letter explaining your background and interests and reasons for wanting to join our lab, along with a CV to Please also arrange for your graduate advisor and anyone else you think is relevant to send letters of recommendation to the same address. Please note that as a general rule I expect all postdoctoral fellows to secure their own funding, for your own benefit as well as that of the lab.

Prospective graduate students: Most of my students enter through the Molecular and Cell Biology graduate program, although I have had, and welcome, students from Integrative Biology, Biophysics and Computational Biology. Please contact me at if you have any questions or need help deciding which graduate program is right for you.

Undergraduates: We have some slots for undergraduate researchers interested in pursuing independent research projects in the lab. We expect undergraduates to devote considerable time to this endeavor, ideally over the course of multiple years. Please contact if you are interested.
