Joining The Lab

Our lab is using real-time single-molecule imaging to (i) study how eukaryotes replicate/repair their DNA; (ii) dissect molecular mechanisms involved in maintaining large/complex genomes; and (iii) understand how multi-subunit molecular machines like the replisome are regulated.

We are looking for curious and highly-motivated undergrads, graduate students, and postdocs to join our team. Since our lab operates at the intersection of biology, chemistry, and physics - we welcome people with very diverse backgrounds, mindsets, skills, experience, and training .

If you find our work exciting we encourage you to reach out by email at chistol@stanford.edu . If you are on campus you are always welcome to drop by the lab to chat.
