Join the Lab

We are always interested in recruiting bright, talented, and curious researchers. Undergraduates, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows excited by our research should directly contact Jeff with the information listed below:

Postdoctoral Applicants

ArtPlease 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 why you are excited about our research, and describe the biological questions you would like to pursue in our lab.  Postdocs are expected to apply for external funding.

Graduate Applicants

The Lewis Lab is affiliated with the University of Arkansas Department of Biological Sciences  and the interdisciplinary Cell and Molecular Biology (CEMB) Graduate Program. Please apply to one of these programs and contact Jeff if you are interested in a position.

Exceptional students may be competitive for additional funding opportunities that will supplement the standard graduate stipend (currently ~$22,000 per year). Both Biological Sciences and CEMB are actively recruiting Distinguished Doctoral Fellows (DDF) and Doctoral Academy Fellows (DAF). DDFs receive an additional $12,000 per year, and DAFs receive an additional $22,000 year. Additional information can be found here.

Undergraduate Applicants

We encourage undergraduates to participate in our research program. Unfortunately, we do not have any positions available at this time. Please check back regularly for openings if you are interested in joining our research group.
