Cellular Mechanics Research Assistant - Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

Cellular mechanics involves the ability of cells to sense and respond to mechanical forces. These mechanics-induced responses may be physical, biochemical, or genetic in nature. This position is seeking highly motivated students to participate in research in the cellular biomechanics lab where our goal is to bridge the gap between mechanics, physiology, and pathology. Current ongoing projects that students will have the opportunity to participate in are in the cardiovascular field, diabetes, neuroscience, and gastroenterology field. Skillsets that will be applied will utilize concepts from engineering, physics, chemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology.
