I am looking for very motivated people to join the group. I am recruiting postdoctoral fellows, undergraduate students, and graduate students interested in pursuing a Master or PhD degree. We have excellent opportunities for funding students and postdocs of any nationality, as well as opportunities for lab members to visit research groups in any part of the world (for periods of 6-12 months) and develop collaborative projects.
If you are interested please email me at rodrigocogni[at]gmail.com
