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. We are looking to train highly motivated and
self-driven students in a suite of complementary techniques to
characterize mechanosensation, including genetic manipulation, bacteriology,
electrophysiology, biochemistry, biophysics, surface chemistry, and others.
No experience is necessary.
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
Madolyn Britt ([log in to unmask]) indicating their level of experience and
how working in the Sukharev lab would fit in to their career aspirations.
