Career Opportunities

The Brown lab values diversity in experience, culture, and knowledge. As such, we strive to recruit, include, and support people with diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences. Read our equality and diversity statement.

If you are interested in research on pediatric rheumatic diseases, we would love to hear from you - we have opportunities for new trainees as well as experienced researchers and medical fellows.

To apply, send us an email that describes why you are interested in studying rheumatic diseases, your past laboratory work experience, and what you hope to gain from being part of our Team. Include your CV, indicate your eligibility for external funding opportunities and, if appropriate, send an unofficial copy or your transcripts.

Please note that because we routinely work with irreplaceable and potentially biohazardous clinical samples (blood, urine and saliva), we generally require undergraduate students to have previous bench experience outside their coursework.

NOTE: if you are interested in pursuing graduate studies, please first contact the UBC Dept of Microbiology & Immunology and complete an application prior to contacting our team.
