Join the lab

Cornell Undergraduate Students We are always looking for motivated Cornell undergraduates to do independent research (for credit) in the lab. In particular students interested in a long term research experience, and eventually an honors thesis, are encouraged to contact me at

Summer (REU) Students The van Wijk lab has a long running tradition of training NSF sponsored summer REU undergraduate students from academic institutes around the country. Students are granted stipends and often assistance with housing and travel. Apply for an REU fellowship through this REU site program. (US citizens or permanent residents)

Graduate Students Graduate students interested in joining our lab should apply for the annual December deadline to the Field of Plant Biology at Cornell, School of Integrative Plant Sciences (SIPS), College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS).  You can select a Research Concentration, and view the basic curriculum. SIPS has an active graduate council to ensure that the needs and goals of graduate students are addressed. Contact me at if you are interested to join the van Wijk lab as a graduate student.

 Post Docs Interested postdoctoral fellows are encouraged to contact me at to discuss opportunities. Some opportunities available through Cornell are the Cornell University Presidential Postdoctoral Fellows.  Cornell has excellent career and family support for postdoctoral fellows through the Office for Postdoctoral Studies .
