Recruitment

We are recruiting research scientists, graduate students, postdocs, and technicians. Write me an email if you are interested in joining the group or doing a research rotation.

In particular, we are now looking for people with experience in: protein engineering, neuroscience, in vivo work, and ultrasound device development, but willingness to learn new things is the most important.

See possible research projects, and contact information.
