We have a few open positions for passionate post-docs, graduate and undergraduate students. We are theorists and experimentalists with a very broad range of interests in fundamental and applied problems in soft-matter physics, cellular and organismic biology, global health and algorithmic self-assembly. We recruit from wide ranging background including biophysics, applied physics, biochemistry, biology, material science, bioengineering, chemistry, applied mathematics, mechanical, electrical and other engineering disciplines. We work in both lab and field settings. We actively explore scale-up of technologies developed in the lab to make a real world impact.
To be a good fit in the lab, you need to share our deep passion and fascination for physics of computation, soft-matter physics, biophysics and our broad view of integrated physical biology. We often work with non-model systems and develop tools for these systems. You should be someone who can think deeply and independently but enjoy collaborating. If you are already at Stanford, come talk to us about a rotation project.
To apply for open positions, please send the following:
1. Recent C.V. and brief list of projects/research you have been involved with.
2. A short but clear writeup stating what your interests are and why would you be a good fit in our group.
3. List of your reference letter writers. We will only contact them after asking you.
Send the above material via email to manup at stanford dot edu.
