Professor Erik Andersen

Prospective post-doctoral researchers

Please send Erik by email a current CV, short summary of graduate research and future plans, and at least three references.

Prospective graduate students

Please apply to the Program in Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics (CMDB).

For interested first-year graduate students

Laboratory rotations occur on a quarterly basis. Students are expected to devote some of their studies to the completion of a 10-week project. Rotation projects can be tailored to a student's interests and skills. Please email Erik to discuss projects and plans, if you are interested.

Prospective undergraduate researchers

Positions are available for undergraduate students to work part-time and learn what it is like to do science. We expect that most research experiences in the lab will culminate in an independent project before graduation. We are looking for students who have the following attributes:

  1. Freshmen or sophomores
  2. Can work at least 12 hours per week during the academic year.
  3. Can work full-time for one or more summers.
  4. Are willing to intern, apply for summer scholarships, and perform research for credit.
  5. Would be willing to continue in the lab for the remainder of their time at Northwestern.

Please apply by email with a CV and a personal statement describing what research specifically interests you.
