Graduate students in doctoral training programs at the University of Alabama in Birmingham and the University of Alabama in Huntsville can join HudsonAlpha labs to complete their dissertation research. Under the direction and mentorship of HudsonAlpha faculty investigators, students conduct innovative research while preparing for careers in genetics, genomics, and bioinformatics. Trainees benefit from the best of both worlds – the infrastructure of their home institution and the unique culture of the HudsonAlpha campus. UAB and UAH Ph.D. students training in HudsonAlpha labs receive tuition and fees, health insurance, and a living stipend.
