Professional and Student Training



Scholarly exchange and collaboration form the foundations of good science. Ancient metagenomics and microbiome science are rapidly growing fields, and we welcome faculty and professionals to contact us about potential visits or training, including longer-term sabbaticals.


Each year we accept a limited number of students from other institutions into our lab for focused supervision for the laboratory component of their research project. Please note that at present due to limited funding, we can only accept students who already have a funded research project. If you are interested in a training opportunity, please contact us and provide the following information:

  • Project Proposal (1-2 pages) that describes: 1) the general project description, 2) the types of samples to be analyzed, 3) the hypotheses to be tested, and 4) sources of support.
  • Your CV
