Join The Lab

We are always interested in recruiting bright, motivated, and curious researchers. Undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows excited by our research topics should contact Dr. Broderick directly by email with the information noted below. I am particularly open to helping promising applicants apply for fellowship opportunities.

Postdoctoral Applicants

Please submit a CV, description of past and future research interests, and the names and contact information for at least three references. In your research statement, describe what piqued your interest in our research and what research questions you would like to pursue in our lab.

Graduate Applicants

Graduate students in the Broderick lab are enrolled in a Graduate Program in the UConn Department of Molecular and Cell Biology. Students must be admitted to the program and PhD students will participate in three rotations in the MCB department prior to joining a lab. MSc students do not perform rotations, and so should contact Dr. Broderick following acceptance into the Graduate Program to explore research opportunities in our lab. Note that space and funding for research in the Broderick lab are limited and not guaranteed by acceptance into the Graduate Program. Questions relating to admissions to the Graduate Program should be directed to the Graduate Coordinator for the UConn Biological Sciences, Anne St. Onge.

Graduate students are typically funded via departmental Teaching Fellowships and Research Fellowships that are awarded based on funding and performance. Students are also encouraged to apply to external funding sources

Undergraduate Applicants

We encourage undergraduates to join our research team. Interested students should submit an unofficial transcript, list of planned course work, and complete our Undergraduate Questionnaire. We are most interested in enthusiastic and motivated students who can commit at least two full years to research (freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to apply), with a minimum of 5-10 hours per week during the academic year.
