Life in the Lusk Lab

It's all about balance...
Futurama2


We are interested in cultivating a lab that is focused on scientific discovery within a supportive and friendly environment. The lab is a mix of students and postdocs at all levels of education and experience. Mentorship is geared toward an individuals needs with the ultimate goal of developing independent critical thinkers prepared for the next career step. The lab balances work with fun whenever possible with game nights, movie nights, lab parties and an annual lab BBQ and badminton tournament where we challenge the King lab for the Lusk-King Cup. Positions are always open for ambitious and talented individuals at all levels.
