We offer rotation projects to motivated PhD students who want to work on exciting projects using variety of approaches from biochemistry to bioinformatics. If you are admitted to a Caltech PhD program, you can send your inquiries, otherwise please apply to one of several PhD programs at Caltech such as Biology, BMB or BE first.


We look for recent (future) PhD with strong productivity record who are motivated to tackle complex biological problems. Solid background in biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, genomics and/or computational biology, as well as perseverance and motivation are required to work on challenging, but rewarding projects.

Recently we have embarked on a new approach and are looking for a postdoc to work on a specific project entitled Single-molecule analysis of RNA fate in live mammalian cells. In this challenging, ambitious, high-risk/high-reward project, you will establish a system to trace the molecular history of single messenger RNA molecules in live mammalian cells, from transcription to splicing, nuclear export, targeting, and translation. The work will be carried out in collaboration with a single-molecule biochemistry group in Leicester, UK. Experience in building and operating optical instruments is required for this position.


Apply if you are looking for research opportunities and please realize that they require serious time commitment, motivation and perseverance.
