Any scientist with interest in lipids, membranes, synthetic biology, or biophysics could be a great fit for our lab. Experience in cell biology or model organism genetics are helpful, but all backgrounds are welcome. For post-doctoral applicants, please contact Itay directly with a CV, a letter of describing your research interests, and contact information for three references. 

Interested graduate students from any PhD or MS program at UCSD can contact Itay directly to discuss rotating or working in the lab.
