Open positions

We will be accepting new graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to our group next academic year (2021-2022).  Our team stems from a rich variety of academic backgrounds, including bioengineering, materials science & engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, and physics. Students admitted to MIT are welcome to get in touch with Krystyn Van Vliet to set up a meeting to discuss research interests and potential projects. Please CC the group administrator, Kathy Simmons, to help schedule a meeting. You can welcome to attend our weekly group meetings, which take place on Mondays from 5:00-6:30pm EST. Admitted students should also feel comfortable reaching out to the current grad students in the group – Cammie and Ming are second-year PhD students who have recently gone through the lab-finding process themselves, and they would also be delighted to talk to you.
