Join the Lab!

Are you interested in joining us?

Email Dr. Mark Dybdahl at dybdahl[at] and tell him why you are interested in the lab! Don’t forget to attach your resume or your CV!

We would love to have dedicated individuals that are interested in getting involved in undergraduate research and possibly even creating their own projects! You will learn valuable model organism care, how to discuss and read scientific papers, and how to utilize specialized microscopes for identifying offspring and measuring phenotypic differences in shell shape. Bioinformatics and phenotypic plasticity studies can also be a part of your undergraduate research experience in this laboratory if you so choose.
