We are an inter-disciplinary group and welcome researchers from diverse backgrounds. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated and talented students and postdocs.

To be a good fit in the lab, you need to share our passion and curiosity for Mechanobiology, be able to work independently but also enjoy collaborating with a diverse team, and get a kick out of learning new things in the lab and outside.

We are committed to providing a growth environment and supportive mentorship at all levels of academic training.


Prospective postdocs should email Medha Pathak to discuss possibilities and will be asked to provide a CV, research write-up, and letters of reference.
