We always look forward to adding new members to the team as openings become available.

Current Openings: We have two reserch assistantships for people with a B.A. or B.S and several postdoc positions with people with a Ph.D. Please see refer to our department job site to find all the availabile positions and links to submit applications.

Summer Internships: Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply for a summer internship in our lab. We tyipcally accept 2-3 interns each summer. A stipend of $6000 is available for an internship though the number of paid internships varies from year to year depending on funding availability. Due to space and mentor limitations, we cannot accept applications from high school students. Applications are accepted from Jan 1 until March 31. Appliants can send a cover letter and CV to Dr. Sue Rhee (srhee at carnegiescience.edu) Interviews are conducted as the applications come in and decisions are made on a first come first serve basis. Thereofre it is beneficial to apply sooner than later. If, for some reason, you missed the March 31 deadline but are very keen on applying, feel free to contact Dr. Sue Rhee. Accepted interns typically work full-time (8 hrs per day excluding lunch break) from June to August for 10-12 weeks. Each intern will be mentored by a postdoc, a grad student, a research assistant, or Dr. Sue Rhee, depending on the available project. Regardless of the mentor, the intern will meet with Dr. Sue Rhee once every 1-2 weeks. There are luch-time seminars from 2 plant faculty every Friday (pizza provided) for all the interns and a poster-session in Aug where the interns show off their work and the entire Carnegie and Stanford plant community is invited.
