Undergraduate researchers interested in learning to do laboratory research at the interface of structural, molecular, and cell biology and biophysics are currently contributing to our research projects. Students should have taken or plan to take MCB C100A and 110. The MCB BMB track provides the best background for work in the lab. Students should plan to commit at least 12 hours/week.
The lab is accepting graduate students with interests ranging from cellular- and structural-level studies of autophagy, to the biophysics of membrane budding, to the creation of new modalities for visualizing complex cellular machines. We are members of the Dept. of Molecular and Cell Biology and the Biophysics Graduate Group.
The lab has one to two positions for outstanding prospective postdoctoral fellows who have a unique vision, are excited by our interdisciplinary approach to membrane and HIV biology, and have top-notch skills in structural biology, molecular biophysics, membrane reconstitution, or cell biology.
