We are looking for curious-minded and passionate researchers, from undergraduates to postdocs, to join our team. Our research interests cover a wide range of topics: frugal tools for science and global health, extreme and ultra-fast organismic biophysics, interfacial fluid dynamics, and experimental soft-matter physics. To apply, please send a copy of recent CV, a brief summary of your projects, and a short statement of your research interests. For potential postdoc fellows, suggestions for fellowships to be targeted are welcome.
