Professional Positions


Undergrads can get involved in our lab in various ways. You could work in the UW BIOFAB as a lab technician, or you could do an independent research project, typically uder the guidance of a graduate student or postdoc. Interested studetns should send a cover letter to Prof. Klavins. Note that we do not have many such positions and they are extremely competetive, so make sure you do your research about what our lab does by reading a few papers before contacting us.

Postdoctoral Scholars

The Klavins lab is regularly screens candidates with expertise in the following: protein engineering, RNASeq, FlowSeq, synthetic biology, machine learning, and software engineering. Candidates with experience with both laboratory methods and information technology are of particular (and almost exclusive) interest. Note that the lab is no longer taking candidates wanting to study robotics.

Graduate Student Research Assistant

The Klavins lab is always seeking highly motivated, independent graduate students in computer engineering, bioengineering, and biology for a variety of projects ranging from building gene networks that compute to developing an automated research laboratory. We accept students in many departments, including EE, CSE, BIOEN, MolES, and Biology. Positions, as always, are subject to funding decisions that are usually beyond our control.
