We recognize that, historically and currently, the scientific contributions of women and people of color have been overlooked and ignored and that these groups (among others) are underrepresented in our scientific community. Lacking diverse perspectives can only hurt the process of scientific discovery. We are committed to uplifting the voices of underrepresented groups in science. In the lab, we are excited to support and recruit researchers with diverse backgrounds and identities.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Prospective fellows are encouraged to apply! Inquiries about opportunities for postdoctoral training should be addressed to Aaron by email. For interested applicants, please attach the following document as one PDF:

  1. Cover letter
  2. C.V.

    • Why are you interested in working in our lab?
    • Do you have a particular project you would like to pursue?
    • What are your short and long-term professional goals both during and after your postdoc?

Graduate Students

We cannot admit graduate students directly, students must first be accepted into a graduate program at the University of Colorado. The home graduate program for our lab is the CU Biochemistry Graduate Program, and qualified undergraduates and recent graduates are encouraged to apply.

The lab can accept current graduate students from many departments across the University of Colorado. Students from Biochemistry, Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology (MCDB), Interdisciplinary Quantitative Biology (IQ Biology), or other related programs that are interested in rotating should contact Aaron by email.

Undergraduate Students

Highly motivated CU Boulder undergraduates that are interested in laboratory research and have sufficient time to devote to experimental science are encouraged to apply to our lab. Undergraduates should contact Aaron by email: include (1) a cover letter describing your motivations/academic background and (2) your CV.
