We are hiring doctoral students!
We are located in the Department of Biology. Research in the Brinsmade Laboratory seeks to understand how bacteria control pathogenesis using nutritional and host cues during infection. Currently we are focused on the Gram-positive, opportunistic pathogen Staphylococcus aureus.
The Brinsmade lab embraces the contributions of a diverse and inclusive group of trainees. This diversity includes the thoughts, perspectives, identities and affiliations, aptitude, aspirations, races and cultures, genders and sexualities of students and postdocs, and are all highly valued. Our grant funding makes us eligible for diversity supplements to increase training opportunities. Please contact Dr. Brinsmade for details.
New in 2022: Dr. Brinsmade and the Brinsmade lab participate in the NIH-funded Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) T32 training grant. If you are a prospective graduate student, please check out the IMSD website for details!!
