We are a new lab and are looking for researchers to join our team! We are committed to building a safe and inclusive scientific environment in stewardship of Cornell’s founding principle of “… any person … any study.” People from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply to our laboratory.

Cornell is located in Ithaca, in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region. Known for its breathtaking natural beauty, including waterfalls and gorges, the city also boasts a thriving arts and culture scene, with a rich history of music, theater, and galleries.
