Open positions

We currently have multiple open positions for our new laboratory in the Department of Physics and Center for Biological Physics at Arizona State University. Please contact Doug via email at or use the “apply here” links below if you are interested.

Postdoctoral scholar (single molecule biophysics; one position available). This position is a joint hire with the StatPhysBio group, led by Dr. Steve Presse, at ASU. The goal is develop and apply quantitative imaging methods for measuring biochemical reactions at the single-molecule scale within living cells.

More information and application here.

Graduate students. Students interested in developing or applying quantitative imaging methods to single-cell decision making and lung developmental biology are welcome! This includes Physicsts and Electrical Engineers (optics and theory), Mathematics and Computer Scientists (instrument control and image analysis), and Biologists and Biochemists (lung model systems, molecular labeling in thick tissue, single cell decision making) are all welcome.

To apply, send Dr. Shepherd an email at with a cover letter and CV stating your interest in the QI2 lab.
