Graduate Application Review Process

We are excited that you are interested in applying to our lab!

The CIRCLE Lab is dedicated to building and fostering a diverse and inclusive community of scholars. It is important to us that the current core lab members’ input are reflected in the application review process. Consequently, we would like the CIRCLE Lab Core Committee, which consists of our core lab members: PIs, Post-docs, Graduate students and Post-bacc Research Staff, to review the application materials in order to encourage a holistic approach in making application review decisions.

*If you feel comfortable with the CIRCLE Lab Core Committee reviewing your application materials, please include an explicit statement at the beginning of your personal statement that says “I would like the CIRCLE Lab Core Committee to review my application materials”.

Before you apply, please make sure to read our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Anti-Racism Statement. We strongly encourage applications from candidates at the undergraduate, post-bacc and graduate level who are committed to contributing to our lab goal in addition to applicants from historically under-represented groups.
