Looking for motivated undergraduate/graduate students and post-docs, interested candidates please apply via email (ozgeakbulut(at)sabanciuniv.edu).
The projects will be about developing simple, cost-effective, functional, and easy-to-use materials/devices/tools. The areas will span separation science, microfabrication and composite materials. For a specific project, I am looking for a candidate with experience in handling cellular materials/cells.
For graduate students, I will make sure that you gain research experience in one of my collaborators’ laboratories outside of Turkey. To the best of my abilities, all of the students/post-docs will be given an opportunity to attend international conferences and workshops.
