The Hancks Lab is currently taking graduate students. Dustin is affiliated with both the Immunology and the Genetics, Development and Disease Ph.D. programs within the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern Medical Center. 

The Hancks Lab is also recruiting postdocs interested in immunology, virology, genetics, and evolution. 

A postdoctoral position is available. The candidate selected for this position will characterize factors vital for the activation of the innate immune response and viral-encoded antagonists of these defenses using cell culture and animal-based models.

The Hancks lab leverages a variety of methods including evolutionary analysis, genomics, and molecular biology to identify and characterize host and pathogen genes which can determine the outcome of infection.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Individuals with experience in genetics/molecular biology, immunology, virology, or microbiology are strongly encouraged to apply. An interest in genomics and/or proteomics, to complement this work, is encouraged but not required.

Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to:
