We stand for Unity in Diversity.

The Basu lab is committed to cultivating an inclusive and collaborative work environment where members are empowered to freely and openly share their different views, ideas and experiences. We provide equal opportunities to applicants for employment regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, age, disability status, socioeconomic status, or citizenship and immigration status. Our goal is to foster an experience that teaches values and tools that last a lifetime and lays a strong foundation for future careers in academic research.

Revolutionary discoveries in STEM come from an integration of ideas by individuals with a diverse mix of backgrounds, experiences, and identities.

Our lab members have scientific experience from 10 different countries. 49% of our past and current lab members represent diverse underrepresented minorities and 52% are women. We welcome individuals from all walks of life and are committed to encouraging diverse perspectives, discussions and ideas.
