We always welcome driven and talented graduate students and postdocs. We are a very interdisciplinary and collaborative research group, and we are interested in researchers with diverse personal and research backgrounds (including but not limited to materials science, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, chemistry, bioengineering, and robotics).


UMich graduate students from related graduate programs (including MSE, MACRO, and Robotics) interested in research opportunities with the lab should contact us for an appointment to discuss available projects.

Graduate candidates at other universities are welcome to contact us, but need to apply for admission to UMich through the Rackham Graduate School.


We welcome dedicated undergraduate students for research during the school year and/or in the summer (through SURF and other summer programs). Interested students are encouraged to contact us to discuss available projects.

Students, postdoctoral fellows, and visiting researchers with external financial support are always welcome to contact us and discuss potential positions in our team.

We look forward to hearing from you!

We currently have open positions available for graduate students starting on Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Please contact us for more details.
