Job Opportunities

We are looking for motivated individuals to perform highly interdisciplinary research at the interface of physical science/engineering and biomedical applications. We are most interested in cutting-edge problems in neuroscience and neural engineering. The lab currently have 2-3 openings for PhD students and postdocs (as of Jun, 2017). Please contact Dr. Xie at chongxie@utexas.edu directly.

Postdoctoral candidates: are expected to hold a Ph.D degree in a related science /engineering field. Background is less important than interest and motivation. Experience in micro/nano fabrication, optics and microscopy, in vivo optical imaging, microfluidics, electrophysiology and neuroscience is preferred. Please contact Dr. Xie directly with your CV. 

Graduate (PhD only): Please apply to the PhD program at department of Biomedical Engineering at UT Austin. Feel free to contact Dr. Xie and group members for more information. In special circumstances, spring admission is possible. Pre‐doctoral research experience is preferred.

Undergraduate: If you are an undergraduate and thinking of joining us, please email Dr. Xie with your resume attached and a brief summary of your interest. We provide independent and educational projects to undergraduates who are committed to research.
