Subject: Undergraduate Research Positions
Dr. Sergei Sukharev is looking for one or two undergraduates to join his lab.
We are interested in understanding the intrinsic mechanisms of
mechanosensitive ion channels, which are ubiquitous to all domains of life
and are implicated in important functions related to bacterial transmission
and even touch sensation. We are looking to train highly motivated and
self-driven freshman and sophomores in a suite of complementary techniques to
characterize mechanosensation, including genetic manipulation, bacteriology,
electrophysiology, biochemistry, biophysics, surface chemistry, and others.
No experience is necessary. Additionally, juniors with laboratory experience
or who are planning on staying an extra year are encouraged to apply.
This is an excellent opportunity for individuals who are interested in
pursuing PhD in Biophysics, Biochemistry, or related disciplines. Our past
undergraduate have won poster presentations, published papers, and gone on to
pursue PhDs at top institutions such as UC-Berkeley and UPenn.
Interested candidates should send their resume/CV and a brief cover letter to
Anthony Yasmann ([log in to unmask]) indicating their level of experience and
how working in the Sukharev lab would fit in to their career aspirations.
