Postdoctoral Research Associate in Nanomedicine

Requisition Number: STFR003806
Division/College: College of Science
Full-time/Part-time: Full Time
Posting Date: 06/15/2017

Responsibilities
Applications are invited for positions involving research in the Nanomedicine Science and Technology Center directed by Dr. Srinivas Sridhar at Northeastern University, in the area of biomedical applications of nanoparticles and nanomaterials. This postdoctoral research associate will synthesize and characterize nanoparticles for drug delivery and imaging, develop conjugation strategies for targeting, carryout in vitro and in vivo studies using relevant biological assays and procedures, supervise and train students (PhD,MS, BS) students and write research papers and prepare proposals in the field of Nanomedicine.

Qualifications
We are looking for dynamic individuals interested in frontier research in nanomedicine, with research experience in characterization and synthesis of nanoplatforms for drug release systems, smart implants and multi-modal imaging. A Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Science or Biomedical Engineering, or related area, and experience in nanoparticle formulations and cell and animal studies, is required.

Additional Information
The Nanomedicine Science and Technology Center directed by Dr. Srinivas Sridhar is a frontier center with extensive resources in characterization and synthesis of nanoparticle, preclinical testing and clinical translation. Current projects include nanoformulations of molecular inhibitors for cancer, multi-modal imaging nanoplatforms, groundbreaking methods of nanoparticle imaging, some of which are entering clinical trials. Many projects are carried out in close collaborations with hospitals in the Harvard Medical School complex. The Center is funded by multi-M grants from NIH, DoD, NSF, hospitals and private foundations.
