We always seek highly motivated, talented and energetic individuals to join our lab to conduct interdisciplinary cutting-edge and applied research.
A Postdoctoral Trainee Position is available immediately. The qualified candidate will work on projects in developing biomaterials for controlled drug delivery and tissue engineering. He/She will be primarily responsible for the biomaterial designs, characterizations and evaluations. The work include 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 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. The individual must have strong technical, interpersonal and written communication skills. It is expected that funding for this position will be available for one year; however, the position may be renewed annually, contingent upon acceptable job performance.
