Postdoctoral Fellow in Regenerative Medicine
Description Two Postdoctoral Trainee Positions are available immediately. The qualified candidates will work on projects in developing biomaterials for tissue engineering and controlled drug delivery. They will be primarily responsible for the biomaterial designs, characterizations and evaluations. The work includes syntheses of the biomaterials by organic, polymer and peptide synthesis techniques. It will also involve characterizations of the synthesized biomaterials by using a number of sophisticated characterization techniques including FT-IR, NMR, LC/MS/MS, UV/Vis, static and dynamic light scattering, confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, HPLC, rheometer, DSC, AFM, SEM, TEM, and microplate reader, etc. The position will also entail conducting in vitro cell culture and ex vivo and in vivo animal work. The individual will conduct data analysis, reporting, and manuscript writing and may be asked to assist with other projects in the laboratory on an occasional basis.
Qualifications PhD in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry, Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences, or a closely related field. The individual must have strong technical, interpersonal and written communication skills. The candidate with strong polymer and organic synthesis background is preferred.
