Post-Doctoral Research Fellow (BME, ChemE, EE)
CELL-MET is an NSF-funded Engineering Research Center involving researchers from Boston University, University of Michigan, Florida International University, Harvard Medical School, Columbia University, Wyss Institute, Argonne National Laboratory, Comision Nacional de Energia Atomica and Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. The goal of the CELL-MET team is to develop tissue-engineering principles to create scalable, low-cost technologies for growing clinically significant cardiac tissue from cell-level building blocks. The research will adapt and advance novel nanomanufacturing techniques to integrate a variety of functional biological structures and elements into flexible polymer scaffolds that support and guide heart cells. Our goal is to create cardiac patches that will someday allow for the repair of hearts damaged by a heart attack or other diseases.
The University of Michigan investigators include faculty from Biomedical, Chemical and Electrical Engineering as well as Michigan Medicine striving to (1) develop chemistries and bioprinting technologies that are biocompatible, robust and reproducible, high yield and adaptable to micro-scale patterning/printing, (2) develop on-demand micron- (and perhaps nano-) scale 3D printing technologies, and (3) develop scaffold technologies that enable cardiac tissue assembly and coordinated contractile function. We are looking for a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow to join this effort and assist in coordination between the departments. Position to be filled immediately.
Candidates should hold a PhD in a related field and demonstrate a strong academic background, professional promise and outstanding potential for independent and interdisciplinary research.
Interested candidates should submit a single PDF application file containing:
- A one-page overview of research interests
- Curriculum Vitae
- Copies of three relevant scientific publications
- Names and contact information for three references
to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20, 2021.
