Prospective graduate students should contact Dr. Hettiaratchi with their CV and research interests and can apply through the Department of Biology or Department of Chemistry at the University of Oregon or the Joint Bioengineering Graduate Program with the Oregon State University.
Due to COVID restrictions, we are currently not accepting new undergraduate students into the lab for the summer term.
Undergraduate students interested in working in the lab should plan to commit to at least 3 quarters of part-time research (~10 hours/week) and 1 summer of full-time research (40 hours/week). Students should contact Dr. Hettiaratchi directly with their CV and research interests. The Knight Campus Undergraduate Scholars Program provides UO students with funding to conduct research for a full year in a Knight Campus-affiliated lab.
Prospective post-doctoral scholars should contact Dr. Hettiaratchi with their CV, research interests, and contact information for three references.
