Our lab is at the intersection of multiple disciplines, and we encourage the participation of individuals from a variety of educational backgrounds. Our group contains members trained in biomedical engineering, materials science, electrical engineering, nuclear engineering, chemistry and biochemistry, biotechnology and biology.

A postdoctoral position is available for immediate hire within the lab. This position will be part of a multiyear New Innovator grant funded by the NIH Office of the Director to develop computational models and proteomic techniques for investigating cellular information processing as a function of redox state and second messenger signaling by reactive oxygen species. The project will involve investigating dynamic protein thiol oxidation during receptor-initiated signal transduction in immune and cancer cells.

Applicants may hold a Ph.D. in the biological sciences, engineering, or computer science but must have prior wet-lab experience. Practical experience in immunology and/or molecular biology is preferred. Salary will be commensurate with prior research experience and NIH guidelines. Interested candidates should submit via e-mail an electronic copy of their CV, a cover letter describing their past research experience, along with complete contact information for three references to Melissa Kemp (melissa.kemp at

Graduate Students
Graduate students who have been admitted to the BME, Bioengineering, or Bioinformatics graduate programs should contact Melissa Kemp about opportunities to rotate with or join the lab.

Undergraduate Research Assistants
Undergraduates interested in conducting research with the lab need to submit the following materials electronically to Dr. Kemp for consideration.

1) A resume, including work history and references
2) A copy of their academic transcripts (unofficial okay)
3) A brief statement about why they're interested in working in the lab

Only highly motivated and responsible students will be considered. Undergraduate researchers are expected to commit to a minimum of 2 semesters and 10-15 hours/week if they want to conduct research in the lab. We are very dedicated to providing undergraduate research opportunities, but due to our lab size we have limited positions available at any given time.
