We seek highly motivated undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral researchers to engage in interdisciplinary research. Our research relies heavily on an intensely collaborative environment, at the intersection of physics, engineering, and cell biology. Prospective researchers should demonstrate not only excellence in their own field of study, but an interest and ability to work across disciplines.
Postdoctoral researchers. There is currently an opening for a joint postdoctoral researcher in the Hendricks and Ehrlicher labs who will use live cell imaging, photoactivation, and optical tweezers to determine the molecular mechanisms that govern the dynamic mechanical properties of living cells and how perturbations of cellular mechanics lead to disease.
Requirements: Research in the Ehrlicher and Hendricks labs encompasses approaches from physics, engineering, life-sciences, and cell biology. Successful applicants will have demonstrated excellence in one or more of these fields, and importantly an interest and ability to work across disciplines. Interested applicants should send a CV, sample selected publication, personal statement describing research interests (1 page), and the names of two references to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Graduate students should apply through the graduate programs in the departments of Chemical Engineering or Biomedical Engineering and list Adam as a prospective advisor. In addition, please email a cover letter and CV.
Undergraduate students should send an email with a cover letter describing your research interests and a brief CV.
