Graduate Student Researchers
The Gonzalez Group is always looking for highly talented and motivated graduate students interested in the biophysical chemistry and biochemistry of biomolecular machines and desiring intensive training in state-of-the-art single-molecule spectroscopies and microscopies. In addition, there are joint graduate student positions available between the Gonzalez Group and any one of several of our collaborators' research groups. Prospective Columbia graduate students interested in joining the Gonzalez Group should apply to the Department of Chemistry's Graduate Program and contact Professor Gonzalez via email. Current Columbia graduate students interested in joining our research group should contact Professor Gonzalez via email.
Undergraduate Student Researchers
There are always ongoing opportunities available in the Gonzalez Group for highly motivated undergraduate students interested in pursuing research in the areas of biophysical chemistry, biochemistry, and/or single-molecule spectroscopy and microscopy. Depending on research interests and experience, undergraduate student researchers may be paired with a senior graduate student/postdoctoral researcher on a project of mutual interest or may pursue an independent research project. The Gonzalez Group also accepts undergraduate student researchers through the Columbia College Beckman Scholars Program, the Columbia College I. I. Rabi Scholars Program, the Columbia College Science Research Fellows Program, the Columbia University Department of Biological Sciences' Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program, and the Columbia University/Barnard College Amgen Scholars Summer Research Program. Undergraduate students interested in pursuing research opportunities in the Gonzalez Group should contact Professor Gonzalez via email.
