Join us

If you are interested in joining the lab, the best thing to do is reach out to Dr. Ratcliff and discuss. Below is some general guidance for different types of position within our group.

Minors (<18 years old): We do not take minors in the lab, unless the are a part of an established program that can provide the oversight required by the University System of Georgia.

Undergrads: We welcome inquiries from GT undergrads who want to work in our group. This is dependent on the availability of mentors in our lab (PhDs or postdocs). We also take UROP students through the Biology and Earth and Atmospheric Sciences UROP programs at GT.

Grad: We are always interested in hearing from prospective PhD students. We take students through both the Biology and QBioS programs at Georgia Tech. It you’re interested in joining our group, please reach out well before the application deadline.

Postdoc/Staff: We do not have any open salary lines to fill, but if you are keen on joining the lab and have ideas for how to raise the funds (via fellowships, or through a collaboration with another faculty member), please reach out.
