The Shapira lab will be accepting new graduate students in 2017/2018. 

The Shapira lab accepts PhD candidates either through the department of Integrative Biology, or through the Graduate Group in Microbiology (GGM). Potential candidates should contact Michael Shapira in advance (with a detailed CV).


Please send a detailed CV including a list of relevant courses taken, GPA, and the details of any prior research experience. A convenient route for applying for research at the Shapira lab is through the Berkeley Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP); whenever possible, this is the preferred route.
