Graduate Students

The Hatfull lab has a long tradition of training graduate students and if you are interested in doing a research rotation please contact Dr. Hatfull.  Students in the Molecular Cellular and Development Biology (MCDB) program as well as those in Molecular Virology and Microbiology (MVM) and Computational Biology programs are welcome to inquire. A variety of projects are available within the general area of the molecular genetics of the mycobacteria and their bacteriophages depending on where your particular interests lie.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate student researchers have make important contributions to the Hatfull Lab, working throughout the academic year and/or during the summer.  Fellowships are available from a variety of sources including from the Hatfull Lab, and other programs at the University of Pittsburgh. Positions for undergraduate research tend to fill up very quickly, so plan ahead and contact Debbie Jacobs-Sera for further information and availability.  We are always looking for keen undergraduate students to join the lab, so please contact us.

Postdoctoral Researchers

If you are interested in postdoctoral research in the Hatfull Lab then please contact Dr. Hatfull. The availability of positions depends on the availability of funds, unless you have your own fellowship support.  We would especially like to hear from you if you have a specific area of interest and a proposal for an idea that might advance the general interests on the lab, especially in the areas of phage genomics, tuberculosis genetics, phage therapy, or site-specific recombination. We anticipate new positions becoming available in the coming year.
