We are always on the lookout for talented people. Please follow the directions below if you are interested in potentially joining the Bowman lab.


Mentoring Style
I see every trainee as a puzzle box. My job is to work with them to unlock their full potential.

Everyone who wants to pursue scientific excellence is welcome in my lab. Research is a major part of scientific excellence, but excellence also includes public engagement, training junior scientists, and many other aspects. As someone who is legally blind, I am active in promoting the engagement of people with disabilities in STEM and I encourage my lab to follow their own outreach passions.

My lab also runs the Folding@home distributed computing project, which provides opportunities to engage with a community of over 200K citizen scientists around the world.

You can learn more about my perspective on science and mentoring on Twitter (@drGregBowman #phdadvice).


Graduate Students and Undergrads
If you are a current graduate or undergraduate student and would like to discuss potential opportunities in the Bowman lab, please email Greg at g.bowman[at]wustl.edu and include your CV and a brief explanation of your research interests.

If you’re interested in applying to Wash U for graduate school, I recommend applying through the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences (DBBS). The Computational and Systems Biology (CSB) program is a particularly good option, and I’ve also taken many students from the Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology (BBSB) program. Students from Biomedical Engineering and other graduate programs are also welcome!


Please email Greg at g.bowman[at]wustl.edu and include your CV and a brief (one page or less) description of a project you might like to pursue in the Bowman lab.  This research description is meant to give us a sense of your interests and the way you think, it is not a binding commitment to a specific project.
