Join the Lab

The Thilly Laboratory is looking for MIT students at all educational levels (undergraduate, SM/PhD) and with a variety of backgrounds and interests. The lab has a history of taking in students from diverse educational backgrounds and putting them at the forefront of our research. The key is to have enthusiasm about learning and working at the cutting edge of stem cells and epidemiology research.

If you are a current or admitted MIT student who is interested in joing the Thilly lab, please send an email to Prof. Thilly. Most projects require a mature understanding of statistics and advanced calculus and a keen interest in stem cell biology but any student is welcome to join since most of the learning occurs in the lab.

For openings about internships and postdoctoral positions for students from outside of MIT, please contact Prof. Thilly.

Please do not write to Prof. Thilly to ask questions about graduate admissions. The Biological Engineering department has a centralized admissions process. For graduate admissions information, please visit the MIT Biological Engineering Graduate Program home page.
