Graduate Students
We always welcome talented graduate students to join our lab. Our lab will offer graduate students excellent opportunities for PhD training. Our research focus is broad; we use in vitro assays, tissue culture cells and animal models to tackle questions in cell biology, biochemistry, and neurobiology. Our research is directly related to human health, we work on Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and other human disorders. We use a wide array of experimental approaches and techniques employing biochemistry, cell biology, electron microscopy and live cell imaging, proteomics and glycomics. Our graduate students have been successful. In the recent years two graduates in the lab have been awarded Rackham Predoctoral Fellowship, one was awarded ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Awards in recognition of the most exceptional scholarly work produced by doctoral students at the University of Michigan; and another won the Chinese government award for outstanding self-financed students abroad. We are confident that you will also be successful and make significant contributions to the lab and to the field. Graduate students interested in rotating in the lab should contact Dr. Wang ( to learn about his lab research and available projects.

A postdoc position is available immediately in this lab. Recent Ph.D. graduates who are seeking a postdoc position to work on a broad topic related to Golgi biogenesis, function, and defects in diseases should send a PDF file with a cover letter stating research interests and qualifications, CV, and contact information for three references to

There are ample opportunities for undergraduate research in the lab. We encourage you to apply in the early years of your undergraduate degree so that you can stay long enough in the lab and have sufficient time to learn the techniques and to make significant findings. Since you will be working with a specific full time lab member who makes the decision whether s/he wants to supervise you, you are encouraged to contact my lab members directly.
