We’re growing!

The Bateman lab is currently looking for additional team members and has several exciting opportunities for qualified motivated candidates!

Bateman’s lab develops and uses advanced biomedical software to analyze complex biomolecular data from mass spectrometry, imaging, clinical and demographic data. Using this approach we developed the first specific blood tests for AD and are using deep analytical tools with fourier transformed data. 

We currently have several positions available in our lab and look forward to adding to our team within the Department of Neurology on the Medical School Campus of Washington University.

For more information on any of the below positions, please email: Batemanlab@wustl.edu.
