The laboratory of Professor Yann Chemla in the Department of Physics is offering an opportunity for an undergraduate to work on a research project on bacterial motility. We work on studying motion of bacteria at both the single cell and population level using sophisticated instrumentation tailored for particular applications. A major focus of our work is on studying how the motion of the bacteria changes in response to environmental cues such as chemicals and light.
