Opportunities for working with Professor Lentink

Graduate students at Stanford University

Every year I can welcome a few exceptional students who are highly interested in Bio-Inspired Flight with a focus on Biomechanics, Fluid Dynamics, or Robot Design.

Postdocs with fellowships in Engineering or Biology

Contact me if you are an exceptional scientist who wants to do a Postdoc in my lab at Stanford University supported by your own national or international fellowship.

Stanford SURI Undergrad Bio-Inspired Flight Research

I am looking for 3-5 highly motivated Stanford undergrads to participate in our bird flight research and flying robot design and bird research projects: Undergrads from all engineering departments are welcome.

Projects for engineering students from The Netherlands, Germany or Switzerland

Outstanding Physics & Engineering students from The Netherlands, Germany or Switzerland are welcome to apply for a 6-9 month MSc (or internship) project in my lab to write a thesis for their home institution (examples from the past include Delft, Eindhoven, Bremen and ETH).

Projects for visiting students in comparative biomechanics

Talented and internationally oriented students from comparative biomechanics labs around the world are welcome to pursue a flight-related project as a visiting student. The lab is interested in short exciting research projects focused on questions that broaden our biological understanding of flight (evolutionary, developmental, and ecological).
