Opportunities

Our work is highly interdisciplinary and brings together individuals who have backgrounds across science, engineering, design, and art. Do you want to push boundaries, work collaboratively, and engage in creative problem-solving? We're hoping to grow our team and build expertise across areas. Whether you're a mechanical engineer, a computer scientist, or a designer—if you're interested in working with us, check out our opportunities below:


Prospective Ph.D. Students

📢 We're currently looking for two Ph.D. students to join our lab starting in Fall 2023.

Students interested in obtaining a Ph.D. under our lab may apply to the ATLAS Creative Technology and Design PhD Program and/or the Computer Science PhD Program based on their interests. In either case, you should list Prof. Michael Rivera as a potential advisor in your application.

If you're unsure about whether you're a good fit, fill out this form. We'll reach out if your background and interests align well with the work we do in the lab. We receive a lot of inquiries—so even if you don't hear back, you should still apply to the Ph.D. program(s). You miss 100% of the shots you don't take!


Undergraduate and Master's Students at CU Boulder

We're always looking for highly motivated students who are interested in the lab's research to work with us. Undergraduates and Master's students may work with the lab in few ways. They may do an independent study for course credit under the supervision of Prof. Rivera during which they either work on an existing project or create their own. Alternatively, when funding permits, we also offer paid research positions.

To apply, please fill out this application. We'll get in touch if your background and interests seem like a good fit.


Postdoctoral Researchers

The lab currently does not have direct funding for post-doctoral researchers. However, if you believe our lab might be a good fit for you, we're open to pursing funded fellowship opportunities with you such as:

If you're interested in pursing one of these or a similar opportunity, please fill out this form to get in touch.


Other Positions

We're open to hosting visiting students and scholars as well as high school interns depending on research interests, project needs, and funding circumstances. If you've made it this far, why not get in touch 🙂?
