Open positions

Our passion for lasting scientific contributions is matched with a dedication to mentoring the next generation of scientists. We are committed to equipping our trainees with a repertoire of scientific, professional, and leadership skills in their quest for impacting the world of science, technology, and education. We are always looking for motivated undergraduate, graduate students, and postdoctoral associates to join our team.

Prospective Graduate Students: If you are interested in our group for graduate studies, please contact Professor Mozhdehi. Following the department policy, you must first apply and gain admission through the chemistry department. Additional information can be found at

Prospective Postdoctoral Fellows/Visting Scholars: We currently have an opening for a postdoctoral fellow. The research focuses on the synthesis and characterization of genetically-encoded post-translationally modified hybrid biomaterials. This research will entail synthetic chemistry, molecular cloning, protein expression, and soft-matter characterization. Experience with soft matter characterization using scattering (DLS, SLS) and microscopy (TEM, SEM) is desirable. Applicants with prior experience in molecular biology will be given priority. Please send your CV, a representative publication, and a brief research summary (no more than 2 pages) in one PDF file to my email address for considerations.

Prospective Undergraduate Students: We currently have openings for undergraduate students. Please submit your resume, transcript, and the name of three references (chemistry TAs are preferred) to my email address for considerations.
