Interested in the dePamphilis Lab?

If you are interested in learning a little bit more about the dePamphilis Lab, then you have come to the right place. From time to time, I can accept a new graduate student or postdoctoral associate, and we almost always need more enthusiastic hardworking undergraduates. This page will give you a little bit more information about what openings we have, how to go about applying to work and study in the lab, and some links to related organizations.

Graduate Students

Graduate students who might be interested in joining our lab should contact Dr. Claude dePamphilis ( or stop by the lab (403 Life Sciences Bldg). We are currently involved in some very exciting projects, and I am always submitting new grant proposals that could open up an opening for a new student. I participate in five graduate programs at Penn State (listed below). Feel free to take a look at their web pages, and see if any of them appeal to you. Please let me know of your interests and we can discuss whether there may be an opening in the lab and which graduate program may be best in your situation.

Undergraduate Students

We are always on the lookout for new undergraduates who are interested in spending some time in a working laboratory, building important skills, and getting to be a part of the scientific community. We almost always have a position open, and we are able to adapt to your schedule. If you might be interested in undergraduate research in the lab, please email Dr. dePamphilis. Also, you may wish to e-mail one of the lab's current undergraduates, as they will be happy to tell you a little bit about what they do. Please remember that these are real students just like yourself, and they may not have time to respond immediately:
