Open Postdoctoral position, faculty mentor Daniel Tawfik

An opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the lab of Dr. Daniel Tawfik in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine at Stanford University.

In addition to priority projects, the Postdoc will have the opportunity to work with other researchers both at Stanford and within our larger national network of collaborators with similar research programs.

Required Qualifications: 

o Highly motivated postdoctoral researcher with:
