Join the Lab

We do not have any funded positions available. We will update the website if any positions become available.

Postdocs We do not have any postdoc openings at this time.

PhD students are usually accepted through the UCLA NSIDP, MCIP, or MBIDP. We are not accepting rotation students in Fall 2021 or Winter 2022 quarters. It is possible that we will accept a rotation student in 2023 to work with Drs. Correa & van Veen. MS students are usually accepted through the IBP MS program. We are not accepting MS students at this time.

Undergraduate researcher  We are trying a new way to train undergraduates in research. PhD student Rachel Scott designed a two-quarter program that collaboratively trains undergraduates in neuroendocrinology literature and approaches. In the first quarter, students read primary research articles that are foundational to our lab’s research.  At the end of the first quarter, a subset of students are selected to join individual projects in the lab and continue in the program. In the second quarter, students learn the major techniques that we use in the lab and begin to gather data.

We will offer this program in Fall 2022 – Winter 2023. Interested undergraduates should email a single PDF with with the following three components to correametabolismlab at gmail. Applications or inquiries to sent to Dr. Correa directly will not be considered.

  1. Short statement (<1 page) answering: 1. Why are you interested in research in the Correa Lab? 2. When would you be able to start working in the lab? 3. How many hours a week are you able to commit the lab? 4. Do you have any previous lab or research experience? If so please list the techniques you have done before. Section headings and bullet points can work well, particularly for questions 2-4.
  2. Your latest resume or CV.
  3. Your latest unofficial transcript, including from previous institutions if you transferred to UCLA.
