The Kurouski lab is looking for high performing and motivated B.S. and M.S. graduates in biochemistry, physics or chemistry to begin their PhD at the cutting edge of the exciting Biochemistry and Biophysics fields.
Lab projects use physics, optics and chemometrics to understand plants, plant pathogens and/or decomposing bodies (forensics). You will get to work on lasers to improve food production and sustainability while getting paid for it! Competitive graduate students will receive a yearly living stipend, health benefits, and tuition, culminating in a graduate degree. Jobs in the area of biophotonics are well paying and plentiful in both private and public sectors. Additional projects include structural organization of amyloids, elucidation of electrochemical and electrocatalytic processes at nanoscale, and forensic applications of Raman and surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. If you don’t know what any of this means but you enjoy meaningful lab work you will love it.
