POSTDOCTORAL ASSOCIATE, Civil and Environmental Engineering-Marelli Lab, to assume a position in microfabrication of structural biopolymers in the Marelli Lab. The project involves the design of new strategies for the micro-nanofabrication of structural proteins using top-down or bottom-up approaches (or a combination of the two). The Marelli Lab is particularly interested in developing new methods to encapsulate drugs in biodegradable materials to control their release profile in the environment.
