Interested in joining the Phelan lab? We're thrilled you want to join us!



Send the following materials: (1) a cover letter describing your career goals and interest in research, (2) unofficial transcripts and (3) a current curriculum vitae. Undergraduate research requires a year commitment.


Graduate Students:

Please use the process for applying to the Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toxicology, or Microbiology doctoral programs. Please contact Dr. Phelan via email in advance of your visit to schedule a meeting, as positions in the lab are largely funding dependent.


Postdoctoral Researchers:

Interested candidates are requested to kindly submit (1) a cover letter describing your career goals/scientific interests, highlighting your two most relevant publications and (2) a copy of your CV including an updated list of peer-reviewed publications (in-press & submitted included, in-preparation excluded) to Dr. Phelan via email. All postdocs will be expected to apply for their own funding.
