Fall 2023 Recruitment

Join iGEM at Berkeley!


Apply to our Experimental or Ideation Teams!

We have several wetlab engineering and computational biology teams, each dedicated to addressing a distinct biological research question. Our experimental teams continue work on well-defined projects, while our ideation teams focus on exploring novel research areas. Joining iGEM at Berkeley helps build your technical skillset, ability to work as a team, and passion in bioengineering research. Regardless of your experience level, check out our teams and consider applying to an Experimental or Ideation Team today before applications close September 4, 2023 at 11:59 p.m.


Apply to our DeCals: FERB I and FERB II

This fall, we’re offering both Foundations of Engineering Biology (FERB) I, a fundamental introduction to synthetic and computational biology, as well as FERB II, a lab-based introduction to synthetic biology that guides you through a basic molecular cloning workflow.

FERB I has no prerequisites. The prerequisites for FERB II are any of the following: FERB I (Fall), BIO 1A, AP Biology, or knowledge of (synthetic) biology fundamentals.

FERB I has 30 open spots and FERB II has 10 open spots. The preferred application deadline is September 2 at 11:59 p.m.. However, applications will be accepted until September 4 at 11:59 p.m. Learn more about our DeCals and read their full syllabi here. Click here or the button below to apply.
