Join Us!
We are building a lab of motivated, collaborative, and self-propelled scientists and engineers who pursue fundamental advances at the interface of soft condensed matter, materials science, and fluid dynamics.

We seek candidates from all relevant fields, but especially in chemical engineering, materials science, physics, and mechanical engineering.  We seek both experimentalists and theorists (and those who do both!):

Experimentalists with experience in robotics (micro and macro), colloids, in-vitro reconstitution, and/or advanced microscopy techniques and instrumentation development.
 
Theorists with strong analytical and computational background in feedback & controls, soft materials, active soft matter, colloidal hydrodynamics (low-Reynolds number fluid mechanics), and/or statistical mechanics of nonequilibrium liquids.


Lab members eligible for external fellowships are expected to apply for them. This will not only benefit the lab, but most importantly you will have more intellectual freedom and an early record of your ability to generate funding, which will empower you and advance your path in industry, government, and/or academia.



Postdoctoral scholars
Interested researchers should email your CV, names and contact information of three individuals who could provide a letter of reference, and a brief summary of the research you wish to undertake in our group.  Please also describe your future career plans. 

Postdoctoral scholars are strongly encouraged to apply to external fellowships, like the James S McDonnell Postdoctoral Fellowship, the NSF Postdoctoral Fellowships, President's Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, and many others.  We are very happy to work with you to submit an application together.
 
Mentoring students and applying for your own funding will be a necessary and valuable part of your training in the lab. 


PhD students
We welcome students from all relevant departments!  Prospective graduate students should apply through Graduate Admissions!  Prospective and current PhD students are strongly encouraged to apply to external fellowships, like the DOE Computational Fellowship, NDSEG, and many others.

Mentoring students and applying for your own funding will be a necessary and valuable part of your training in the lab.
