The School of Materials Science and Engineering is looking for a highly motivated and experienced candidate to join us as a Senior Research Fellow (SRF). The SRF will join a government agency funded project led by A/P Ng Kee Woei (https://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/kwng/) to develop novel nanomaterials and understand their function as matrices for MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry applications.

The SRF will manage the project and carry out mass spectrometry analysis as required. The SRF will also be responsible to lead a team of researchers across multidisciplinary fields to ensure the success of this project. Eventually, the team is expected to develop an analytical software approach to set up standardized high-throughput data collection and analysis workflows.

Key responsibilities

  • Conduct thorough literature review and generate periodic updates
  • Carry out MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry to analyse biocorona on nanomaterials
  • Carry out data analysis of mass spectrometry profiles to identify biomarkers
  • Develop analytical software approaches to set up standardized high-throughput data collection and analysis workflows
  • Carry out biochemical and biological assays to understand the bioavailability, biopersistence and toxicity of nanomaterials
  • Develop and optimize protocols
  • Supervise junior research staff, undergraduate and graduate student projects
  • Manage logistical issues and supervise laboratory operations
  • Coordinate collaborative work within multidisciplinary team and external collaborators
  • Generate periodic progress report as required by funding agency

Job Requirements:

  • PhD in Materials Science/Chemistry/Biological Science/Chemical Engineering/Forensics or related fields
  • A strong track record of research ability and demonstrated contribution to research (e.g., research publications, grant applications, patents) required
  • 5 years relevant postdoctoral training experience required
  • Experience with MALDI-ToF mass spectrometry and biostatistics data analysis required
  • Experience in scientific programming (Excel, Matlab, Python) preferred
  • Experience in nanomaterials synthesis, functionalization, and characterization preferred
  • Experience in mammalian cell culture preferred
  • Good communication and writing skills
  • Good coordination/project management skills
  • Able to plan and execute experiments with minimal supervision
  • Able to take initiative to improve processes and troubleshoot problems
  • Able to organize well and adhere to deadlines

We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
