Openings and Opportunities
Come join us!
Our group is always looking for excellent and motivated undergraduate and graduate students as well as postdoctoral scholars. If you are interested in the research that we do, or you would like to talk about possible project ideas, please send Dr. Adebiyi an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition, please include in the email your CV and a description of your background and research interests.
Our group strives to provide a supportive and enriching research environment where diversity is a source of creativity and innovation for students and postdocs of all backgrounds, nationalities, races, ethnicity, and sexual orientation.

Although UC Merced is the newest of the University of California system, it is a designated Hispanic-Serving Institution and the most diverse of all the UC campuses.
