The lab is always seeking energetic, innovative scientists with a strong interest in host-microbe interactions, immunology, microbial ecology, and bioinformatics.

Postdoctoral Fellows:

We are seeking highly motivated, independent and collaborative scientists to study immune mechanisms supporting microbiome-based therapeutics. Please email michael.abt@pennmedicine.upenn.edu to discuss translational and basic science research projects currently available

Graduate Students:

We are accepting rotation students from all CAMB and IGG UPenn graduate programs. If you are interested in rotating in the lab, please email michael.abt@pennmedicine.upenn.edu to discuss potential rotation projects.

Undergraduate Students:

The lab is open to enthusiastic undergraduate students seeking to gain research experience in a microbiology lab. Summer internship and work-study opportunities are available. Please review the Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowship (CURF) website for more details.

Research Specialists:

We are seeking research specialists to spearhead our efforts to use next-generation sequencing data to identify causal relationships between the host immune system and surrounding microbial communities. Expertise in R programming and Python coding is a prerequisite. Please email michael.abt@pennmedicine.upenn.edu to get in touch.
