We are always looking for talented postdoctoral fellows who are interested in interdisciplinary projects to understand cardio-metabolic disorders. Please contact Dr. Civelek explaining your interests, along with a CV and names of references.
Graduate students can join our lab after they are admitted to the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program in the School of Engineering and Applied Science or the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program in the School of Medicine. Students who are interested in our research focus are encouraged to contact Dr. Civelek. Rotation projects are available.
Undergraduate students from any department are encouraged to contact Dr. Civelek for possible positions in the lab. Students are encouraged to take research credits, pursue their senior design projects, or work in paid positions. Paid summer positions may also be available based on your performance during the school year. However, you will be encouraged to apply for funding through various mechanisms that provide support to undergraduate research.
Members of the Civelek lab represent vast diversity with respect to race/ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, sexuality, immigration status, disability, nationality, military service, religion, and worldview, among other dimensions of diversity. Keep in mind that a major aspect of our research is to study human diversity. We strive to create a safe space where every individual can attain their full potential. We define safe space as an environment where difficult subjects can be discussed openly, without the risk of disrespect or harsh judgment. Throughout your time in the Civelek Lab, you will be pushed to recognize your own biases and the role that they play, for better or for worse, in your work.
