Open positions

We will be accepting new graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to our group this upcoming academic year (2022-2023).  Our team stems from a rich variety of academic backgrounds, including but not limited to 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 Simons, to help schedule a meeting. You are welcome to attend our weekly group meetings, which take place on Mondays from 5:00-6:30pm EST. We also encourage you to reach out to the current grad students in the group, all of whom would be happy to share their experiences with you.
