Research Rotations for Prospective Ph.D. students #top
The main goal of a lab rotation (two months each for Biochemistry and Chemistry) is to get a flavor for the type of science we do, the dynamic of our research group, and what careers our students pursue after they graduate. Your activities will include a selection of the following: Overexpress and purify a protein from E. coli cells, purify biopolymers from fruit cuticles or fungal melanins, conduct and analyze 600 MHz NMR experiments in solution or solid state, try HPLC and/or MS to separate a plant metabolite mixture. Give a 15-min PP presentation to our research group on a published article, your prior M.S. research, or your rotation labwork. Write a 1-page report on someone else's group meeting presentation. Read a recent publication from our group, then write a 1-page summary of the major findings and a follow-up question you would like to address. Do a literature search to assist someone in the group (who will show you how to do it). Do a survey of 'junior' and 'senior' group members about their research projects, accomplishments, challenges, and career plans. Talk with Prof. Stark about research projects for which new grad students are being recruited. For a pictorial view of our current research projects, see the attached file.
