The Davis lab celebrates diversity and is committed to fostering an inclusive scholarly environment. This value is exhibited in our research, which shows that biodiversity is essential to the adaptability and survival of cells. In our scientific endeavors, we welcome collaboration, promote communication, respect different perspectives, and appreciate the opportunity to interact with researchers from diverse backgrounds.We embrace the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion that enable personal and intellectual growth during our pursuit of scientific excellence.

WE'RE HIRING! I am looking for enthusiastic and motivated scientists - graduate students and undergraduates - to join me! Our research is at the interface of biology, physics, and chemistry, so I am recruiting researchers from diverse backgrounds. Projects will be tailored to your research interests and expertise. Group members can expect to receive training in a combination of protein and RNA biophysics, live cell microscopy, spectroscopy, lasers, mathematical modeling, and physical chemistry. Experience in all of these areas is not necessary - just enthusiasm and willingness to learn! More details below...
