Student and postdoc training opportunities
The Lindsey Lab is always looking for excellent student and postdoc trainees with an interest in neural stem cell behaviour, plasticity, and repair. Competitive student stipends and postdoc salaries are offered. However, all trainees are expected to apply for relevant scholarships and fellowships over the duration of their tenure in the Lindsey Lab.
High quality research training
The Lindsey Lab is committed to high quality research training in a supporting learning environment. Trainees joining the lab can expect stimulating and challenging projects at the leading edge of neural stem cell research. Specific projects are designed with Dr. Lindsey, taking into account the level of technical experience and research background of trainees. Opportunities to collaborate with other laboratories, and with other animal models, are also available on a project-to-project basis.
Fundamental to the Lindsey Lab is that trainees have the opportunity to develop and expand their technical skillset, critical thinking, as well as their written and oral scientific communication. These skills form the foundation not only for a successful career in academic research, but are transferable to a wide range of careers, including government, public health, medicine, and the private sector. All projects in the Lindsey Lab are publication driven, and as such, provide trainees with experience in data collection, data analysis, manuscript writing, and the peer review process. Attendance at local, national, and international conferences provide trainees with the chance to showcase and discuss their research findings with other students and colleagues and develop their professional skills. Additionally, Dr. Lindsey encourages more experienced trainees to contribute to the direct training of more junior members of his team.
Candidates interested in joining the Lindsey Lab in the Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Science should email Dr. Lindsey directly, and include a brief statement of their research interests, CV, and a copy of their recent transcript. Short-listed candidates will be expected to provide the name and contact information for three references that can offer an assessment of the candidate’s research potential and laboratory experience.
