<p>Welcome to the [name lab]! My goal as a Principal Investigator (PI) and mentor is to foster an inclusive environment in the lab where everyone can reach their full potential as (independent) scientists. This document describes how our lab functions in order to ensure that you have everything that you need to be a happy and productive member of our lab. We pride ourselves on being an open and collaborative group and would like you to know that we are happy to answer any questions you may have about life in this/our lab.</p>
<h2><strong>About the lab</strong></h2>
<p>[While we suggest including the following points in this section, these are specific for each lab, or maybe even department/university/institute]</p>
<p><strong>About the lab:</strong>
Describe broad questions that the lab is interested in.
Introduce the model system(s) the lab works with (including basic maintenance/animal care).
Describe techniques that are commonly used in the lab that new members should either already be familiar with, or learn or get trained on. Potentially name the expert person(s) in the lab for each technique.</p>
List required training/inductions and contact persons for these sessions.
List specialized equipment that the lab itself contains (i.e. sequencers, mass spectrometry instruments, (q)PCR machines, etc). Also link to core facilities on campus that may have more specialized equipment, or equipment the lab does not own including names and email addresses of who to contact (for inductions, adding to mailing list, etc) and links to booking systems.</p>
Mention here (a link to) the basic safety rules and regulations of your department/university/institute, including phone numbers of whom to contact in case of emergency.</p>
