Join the Herr Laboratory

The Herr Laboratory welcomes individuals from any race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, political affiliation, sexual orientation, and eligible age or disability status. We are committed to maintaining a supportive and collaborative work environment. We encourage exploratory inquiries!

Please see more about our lab compact and philosophy.

The Herr Lab doesn’t generally post announcements for specific positions, so please reach out if you are interested in being involved! We are interested in engaging you in a conversation about your scientific background and goals for your future career (in academia, industry, or other ventures). We, as a collective group, strive to provide excellent training across a wide range of computational and experimental techniques.

Graduate Students

The Herr Lab participates in the following graduate degree programs at the University of Nebraska:

At the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, potential graduate students can apply to the Office of Graduate Studies and do not apply directly to our laboratory. Depending on the graduate program, a laboratory rotation period may be required or not. For the programs that the Herr laboratory are affiliated with, the typical schedule is for students to rotate through approximately 3 labs prior to deciding on a thesis lab, all during the first year of the Ph.D. program. Our lab is usually open for rotation students every quarter.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Inquiries about possible Post-doctoral fellow positions should be emailed directly to laboratory head, Josh Herr. Candidates will be encouraged to explore applying for extramural fellowships to support their research.

Other Visitors

In the past, the Herr Laboratory has enjoyed having foreign exchange students, interns, sabbatical visitors from academia and industry, and technicians in the lab. We are open to other arrangements as well. As we expect people to be fairly compensated for their work by their home institution or by us, we do not have volunteer positions available. We also host high school students exclusively through the Young Nebraska Scientists Program through Nebraska EPSCoR during the summer.
