Our group works as a team around a number of different research topics. We seek new group members who are energized by doing research and who want to work with others who are similarly motivated. This FAQ provides guidance for applying to the group.


We hire MIT UROPS on a rolling basis all year. MIT undergraduates who wish to do a UROP project with the group should email Professor Lienhard directly, including a CV and a description of your interest in the group. UROP projects can often be extended into SB theses.

Admitted MIT Graduate Students

If you have been admitted to MIT and you are interested in the group, please email Professor Lienhard, including a description your research interests.

Postdoctoral Associates

We have a limited number of postdoctoral positions. A description of available openings will be posted here when openings appear. If you wish to apply, please send a statement about your interest in the group, your CV, and two letters of recommendation.

Prospective MIT Graduate Students
