News and Openings


We have openings for highly motivated graduate students and postdocs, with interest and/or background in quantitative microscopy, computational biology and/or receptor signaling.

Interested students should apply to the UT Southwestern graduate school, but can also send an email with their CV and research statement to for any inquiries.

Interested postdocs should send an email with their CV and research statement, describing their past accomplishments and current interests, to

Please see our current job ad for a postdoctoral position to study mechanics-signaling crosstalk.



March 2018: Tony's paper about transient motion analysis appeared in the March 13th issue of Biophysical Journal (Vega et al. Biophys. J. 2018. Multi-step track segmentation and motion classification for transient mobility analysis).

January 2018: Lots of news!

          Tony's work on transient motion analysis got accepted for publication in Biophysical Journal.

          Our collaborators' work that employs Tony's software ("DC-MSS") just got published in Cell (Freeman, Vega, ...., Jaqaman, Grinstein Cell 2018. Transmembrane pickets connect cyto- and pericellular-skeletons forming barriers to receptor engagement).

          Way to go, Tony!

          Deryl Tschoerner from UTD started working in the lab as a Green Fellow. He is a mathematics major and we are excited about the mathematical and computational skills he brings to his project.

          Colton Alstatt from Frisco High School started doing an independent study with us.

December 2017: Tony was selected to give a platform talk at the Biophysical Society 2018 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA. He also received a UTSW GSO travel award to attend the meeting. Congratulations, Tony!

September 2017: Khuloud and Andrew Jamieson (Bioinformatics) devised and taught a Nanocourse on Computational Image Analysis.

June-August 2017: Jesus Vega-Lugo (from Universidad del Sagrado Corazón, Puerto Rico) joined the lab as a summer undergraduate research fellow. Good luck Jesus in finishing your undergraduate studies and applying to graduate school!
