We are looking for motivated graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who are interested in working in a dynamic multidisciplinary laboratory which combines experimental biology with quantitative approaches.
If you are potentially interested in joining our laboratory and you would like to know more about our research efforts, please contact Murat.
For graduate student positions:
Yale graduate students who are in the following departments or programs are strongly encouraged to contact Murat by sending him an e-mail.
- Applied Physics
- Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Structural Biology
- Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
- Engineering Departments
- Integrated Graduate Program in Physical and Engineering Biology
- Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics, and Development
Why should Physics and Engineering students consider joining a Systems/Synthetic Biology Laboratory? The following articles provide perspectives on Physics-Engineering-Biology connections:
For postdoctoral positions:
We are interested in candidates who (will) have a PhD in Biology, Biophysics, Systems/Synthetic Biology, bioEE, or other experimental fields. Motivated candidates who are interested in switching from more traditional (not related to Biology) subfields of Physics or EE to experimental systems/synthetic biology are also welcome. For these candidates, no previous experience in biology is required; however, they are expected to be highly motivated and willing to learn molecular biology and yeast genetics. For candidates with a PhD in Biology, previous experience in quantitative modeling is not required.
Based on his/her background and research interests, each postdoc will carry out an experimental, computational, or experimental/computational research project.
To apply: Please send Murat your updated CV.
