The Schrader Lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wayne State University is focused on understanding RNA based genomic regulatory mechanisms in bacterial cells. Using a systems biology approach we combine genomics, biochemistry, and genetics to reveal the genomic regulatory programs that control bacterial development. 

The Schrader lab is currently recruiting graduate students. Interested Ph.D. or M.S. students should apply to the Wayne State Biological Sciences Graduate Programs. Current Ph.D. or M.S. students should contact professor Schrader to discuss possible projects.  

Undergraduate students interested in research please read the instructions here. All undergraduate positions are currently filled, however, exceptional candidates should still apply.
