Barton lab UCR Physics


I’m looking for prospective graduate (or undergraduate) students and postdocs who are interested in working on problems in immunology, evolution, and statistical inference, like the ones described here. Ultimately, the projects I’m interested in usually involve a little bit of theory, a little bit of computation, and a hard look at real data – often together with experimental collaborators.

Students at UCR should send me an email to set up a meeting. I’m always excited to discuss open projects. Analytical and/or computational skills are a must to get started. Experience with biology is also a plus, but it’s not a requirement.

Prospective postdocs should also send a CV and a brief summary of your research interests. Tell me a little about who you are as a researcher and why you’d like to work together. If you’re interested in applying for postdoctoral funding through sources like HFSP (for PhD students outside the US), JSMF, the NIH, or NSF, let me know as well and I’d be happy to help with your application.
