Lab events

We’re recruiting Ph.D. students!

You could be here…
And anywhere here…
And here. USC at dawn just outside our building.
Or even here. A view of the main lab space and postdoc/student office shortly before move-in.

The Thrash Lab is recruiting Ph.D. students to begin in summer/fall 2020 through the USC Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography graduate program. Projects could span a variety of topics including high-throughput cultivation and genomics of new marine bacterioplankton, investigating microbial interactions with synthetic marine communities, fundamental evolutionary constraints on growth rates, biological growth efficiencies, riverine microbial ecology, and even hydrocarbon degradation. Techniques you could learn include flow-cytometry and FACS, FACS-enabled targeted cultivation, comparative (meta)genomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics, aerobic and anaerobic cultivation, and possibly many others via the rich collaborative opportunities within USC and in the southern California region. 

The MBBO program admits students directly to specific labs (no rotations), so if you are interested in doing your Ph.D. with us, please contact Cameron with your project thoughts, questions, and a current CV. Also check out our personnel expectations on the Opportunities page.
