Join us!

We are looking for motivated, dedicated, and kind scientists to join our team!

We strive to build a diverse team of researchers from different backgrounds and foster a friendly, inclusive, and rewarding research environment.


We have limited openings for undergraduates to do research in the lab. Students are expected to commit ~10 hours/week to lab research for at least two semesters. Please email Zepeng if you are interested and include your CV or unofficial transcript so that Zepeng knows the courses that you have taken.

Graduate Students

We accept graduate students from different graduate programs at UF. Most graduate students join the lab through the Zoology Ph.D. Program (application instructions here, and note that the application deadline is typically December 1). Please email Zepeng if you would like to discuss your research interests or if you have questions.

Postdoctoral Fellows

We continuously accept postdoctoral applications. Please email Zepeng and briefly explain your current research and future plans, and why you are interested in joining us. Please also include your current CV and the contact information of three references.


Please email Zepeng for other opportunities to join the lab. We are always excited to hear from curious and motivated researchers.
