Our lab is at the intersection of multiple disciplines, and we encourage the participation of individuals from a variety of educational backgrounds. Our group contains members trained in biomedical engineering, materials science, electrical engineering, nuclear engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, and biology.
Qualified candidates should contact Melissa Kemp about potential employment opportunities.
A postdoctoral position is open on a multi-investigator project studying nucleocytoplasmic trafficking in response to oxidative stress (PI, Rob Dickson). Candidates should be interested in the development and application of novel nanoprobes for intracellular imaging. Requirements include a Ph.D. in molecular or cell biology (or related field), excellent communication skills, and the ability to work effectively with team members in multiple disciplines.
Graduate students who have been admitted to the BME, Bioengineering, or Bioinformatics graduate programs may contact Melissa Kemp about opportunities to rotate with or join the lab.
Undergraduate Research Assistants
Undergraduates interested in conducting research with the lab need to submit the following materials electronically to Dr. Kemp for consideration.
1) A resume, including work history and references
2) A copy of their academic transcripts (unofficial okay)
3) A brief statement about why they're interested in working in the lab
Only the best students who are highly motivated and responsible will be considered. Undergraduate researchers are expected to commit to a minimum of 2 semesters and 10-15 hours/week if they seriously want to conduct research in the lab. We would love to provide undergraduate research opportunities for the many outstanding students that express interest, but unfortunately have limited positions available at any time.
