We are seeking curious, motivated scientists at all stages to join the group! Our work is inherently interdisciplinary, and we welcome applicants from physics, biology, immunology, biophysics, applied math, and related fields.
Opportunities are available for experimental postdoctoral positions in the group, and for joint work with our theory colleagues. We are particularly seeking applicants with experience in molecular biology/genetic engineering to develop novel optogenetic tools for precise spatiotemporal manipulation of immune processes. However, other current/recent graduate students with interests in quantitative immunology are also encouraged to apply. There are a number of opportunities for fellowships sponsored by the university and department; please contact Elizabeth for more information. Prospective postdocs should include a CV and a brief description of interests and background.
University of Chicago students from any science program are encouraged to contact Elizabeth to arrange a rotation. Please include a brief description of your interests and background. If you are a prospective applicant, please contact Elizabeth to discuss graduate programs.
Laboratory Manager/Research Technician
We are seeking a Laboratory Manager/Research Technician to help establish the new lab. This is a particularly exciting opportunity for someone who wants to be part of a team where they are valued for both their managerial and scientific contributions. Applicants should have a Bachelor’s degree and research experience in a biology lab. Recent graduates who are seeking additional experience prior to graduate school are encouraged to apply. Responsibilities will include general laboratory and zebrafish colony management, as well as molecular biology protocol development under the supervision of the PI. The position will begin in January, 2023.
If you are interested in a work-study or tech position in the lab, please contact Elizabeth. We also anticipate opportunities for undergraduate research projects beginning in the 2023-2024 academic year.
