WHO WE ARE
In the Bess Lab, we are an interdisciplinary, collaborative bunch who think neat science happens when we fuse diverse perspectives. We welcome chemists (organic, bio, and analytical) and biologists (micro and computational) who are eager to learn new skills and to share their expertise.
If you're a motivated scientist who's interested in joining our team, send your CV and cover letter (summarizing your research interests and goals) to Professor Bess.
