Graduate Students

Students interested in doing PhD research in the Smith Lab should apply to either the Chemistry or Molecular Biology and Biochemistry graduate programs at Wesleyan University.


While there are currently no open postdoctoral positions, people interested joining the lab are encouraged to apply for their own funding. Please contact Colin Smith for further information and help formulating a proposal. Researchers currently located in Germany are eligible to apply for a Feodor Lynen Research Fellowship, as Colin Smith is a former fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

Undergraduate Students

Students wishing to do undergraduate research in the Smith Lab are encouraged to attend lab meetings and talk to current members of the lab to find out more. People with interest in computational research and methods development are especially encouraged to join.
