The Topp Lab is recruiting new team members at the undergraduate, technician, graduate, and postdoctoral levels. Applicants with backgrounds in Engineering, Computer Science, Statistics and an interest in learning Plant Biology, or a deep knowledge of plants and great enthusiasm for computation and building things are especially encouraged. We strive to push the limits of technology enabled science, learn something new each day, and have fun doing it! Contact Chris
with a brief statement of background and interests.
