JOINING THE LAB

We have several open positions for students and postdocs in the area of neuroengineering with particular emphasis on nanofabrication, photonics, magnetics, imaging, and electrophysiology. Students with experience these areas are particularly encouraged to apply; however, we prioritize talent, enthusiasm, and commitment over any particular training. Many of the most successful lab members had no prior biology training. If you'd like to learn more about joining the lab please see below.

PROSPECTIVE RICE STUDENTS

Applicants to the ECE PhD program are encouraged to indicate your interest in neuroengineering and the Robinson Lab in your application to the ECE department at Rice. Applicants to other departments at Rice are encouraged to email Prof. Robinson with a copy of their CV.

CURRENT RICE STUDENTS

Current undergraduate and graduate students interested in working with the group are encouraged to email Prof. Robinson with a copy of their CV to learn more about the latest opportunities in the lab.

PROSPECTIVE POSTDOCS

Postdocs interested in applying to work in the group should email Prof. Robinson with a statement of interest, CV, and a list of at least three references.
