Opportunities and Inquiries

Potential opportunities are available in the Shukla Lab for talented graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduates. Please contact Professor Shukla directly to discuss your interest in these opportunities.

Postdoctoral Students
The Shukla Lab is looking for a postdoc in the area of targeted and responsive biomaterials for treatment of bacterial infections. The project will have a large in vivo focus and we are considering applicants with a broad range of training backgrounds (engineering, chemistry, microbiology, etc.). Please share the opportunity!

Graduate Students

  • Updated CV (including GPAs and names of at least 3 references)
  • Cover letter expressing interest, research background, and research goals

Graduate programs of interest at Brown:
Biomedical Engineering
