We are always on the lookout for driven, creative, and resilient graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduate scholars passionate about working at the intersection of protein engineering, synthetic biology, imaging, and molecular biomedicine.

Graduate students: We welcome graduate students from all programs at UCSB including Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Biomolecular Science & Engineering, and Biological Engineering. If you are currently enrolled in any of these programs and are interested in our work, please send me an email.

Postdoctoral fellows: Please email me your CV along with a 2-page (single-spaced, 12 pt font, Arial typeface) statement of research accomplishments & future research plans.

Undergraduate students: Minimum requirements are scientific curiosity, dependability, 3.5+ GPA, and availability to work > 12 hours per week during the academic year. This is what it takes to gain a meaningful research experience in biomolecular engineering. If you are interested in applying, please email your CV.
