Are you interested in joining the Abel Lab?

Undergraduate Students
Internships and 199 studies are an ideal way to acquire laboratory skills by working independently under supervision of experienced lab members on real research projects. You are welcome to join our lab any time, if space permits. Please, call 752-5549 (office) or 754-8964 (lab) and ask for Steffen Abel. You also may simply visit us in 204 or 210 Asmundson Hall.

Graduate Students
To join our lab as a graduate student, please apply to one of the following graduate groups: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) Graduate Group, Genetics Graduate Group (GGG), or Plant Biology Graduate Group (PBGG). During their first year, graduate students of these groups are required to take five- or ten-week long "laboratory rotations", which is an effective way to get exposed to a variety of labs and research projects, and to finally choose a lab for the dissertation research. Arrangements for lab rotations can be made any time, the sooner the better, by contacting Steffen Abel.

Postdoctoral Scientists
Openings for postdoctoral researchers are contingent on availability of funding. However, applications are welcome any time and should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and three addresses of references. Preferential consideration will be given to highly motivated scientists of documented productivity. Please, send applications to: Steffen Abel, University of California-Davis, Department of Plant Sciences, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA.
