 We are looking for group members who are motivated to work in a highly collaborative environment with the option of cross-training in theory, computational and experimental techniques. 

Graduate Students

If you are an incoming CBE graduate student at UC Berkeley (PhD or Masters) interested in learning about our work, please write to me directly. I am affiliated with the Berkeley Biophysics Graduate Group,  the Center for Computational Biology, and the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and we welcome graduate students from these programs. Students with strong mathematical and programming skills are strongly encouraged to inquire.

Undergraduate Students

I enjoy working with and mentoring undergraduate students who are interested in research. If you are a UC Berkeley undergraduate in CBE/MCB/CS/Physics/Math, please write to me if you wish to discuss research opportunities.

Postdoctoral trainees

We are looking to recruit highly motivated postdoctoral trainees. Graduating doctoral students with experience in one or more of molecular biology, computational and systems biology, and neuroscience are strongly encouraged to apply.  We are especially eager to recruit candidates with a strong track record in biology that are looking to expand their skills in computational analysis, and are willing to lead the setting up for the laboratory's experimental efforts. Please write to Karthik with a statement of interest and a CV.
