Sohn Group Retreat 2015

We are interested in highly creative individuals who have a background in one or more of the following:
Engineering, the physical sciences, and molecular and cellular biology.

If interested, please contact Prof. Lydia Sohn via email () and include your resume/CV and a short description of your research experience.


We seek highly motivated, experienced individuals who are passionate in developing and applying new technologies to probe cellular systems. We are particularly interested in those who will help us advance the next-generation Node-Pore Sensing platform. Candidates should have a strong background in physical or engineering methods and technology development and applications.

Graduate Students

Because our work is highly interdisciplinary, we seek graduate students with different scientific and engineering backgrounds who have already demonstrated a strong potential for experimental research. Interested graduate students should have experience and/or interests in integrating the physical and biological sciences and in translational research.


We hire many undergraduates to work along side our graduate students and postdocs. Students should have completed the basic courses in their major, be at least in their 2nd semester of their Sophomore year, and preferably have had prior laboratory experience. Undergraduates are expected to commit ~10 hrs/week in the lab during the semester at the start of their internship.
