Research Opportunities

The approach we take to protein-assembly engineering is highly interdisciplinary, and we welcome highly motivated individuals from diverse backgrounds including chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, biology, immunology, virology, biostatistics, and computer science. If you are interested in our research, please send Prof. Fei Wen a brief statement of your reason for applying, your research interests and career plan, your CV, and any relevant information about yourself in a single pdf file.

Postdoctoral fellows

One position is currently available to develop agents for multiplexed cellular biomarker detection. An ideal candidate should have strong expertise in protein biochemistry, biosynthesis and characterization of protein/DNA/RNA, or biostatistics/data mining. A PhD degree in biochemistry, immunology, bioengineering, chemical engineering, biostatistics, or other related fields is desired.

Graduate students

The Wen Lab has openings for graduate students. If you are a current UM student and interested in doing a rotation in our lab, please contact Prof. Fei Wen as instructed above. A follow-up meeting will be scheduled to discuss shared interests. If you are a prospective student, please apply directly through the Graduate Program of Department of Chemical Engineering (http://www.engin.umich.edu/che/graduate). If you have a particular interest in the Wen Lab research, feel free to email Prof. Fei Wen.

Undergraduate students

The Wen Lab is always looking for motivated and dedicated undergraduate students who are passionate about research. Currently, we have a group of active and hardworking undergrads who are making significant contributions to the projects. As a result, they are generating co-authored publications and presented their work at local and national conferences. If this aligns with your interests, please send your application as instructed above to Prof. Fei Wen.
