School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering (SCBE) invites applications for the position of Research Fellow.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Design and characterize novel biodegradable, biocompatible materials and tissue scaffolds with controlled drug delivery capabilities for neural tissue engineering & stem cell engineering
  • Design, optimize and fabricate tissue scaffolds (e.g. hydrogels, injectable scaffolds, electrospinning, 3D printing)
  • Characterize scaffold properties: physical, drug/gene release kinetics, cell/tissue interactions, degradable, etc
  • Design and execute experiments independently
  • Expected to interpret experimental results, and author papers in high-quality journals in areas that are related to the research
  • Demonstrate excellent communication skills and have a strong passion and commitment to science
  • Work closely with the Principal Investigator to help supervise and train junior lab members and to ensure smooth functioning of an active research program
  • Expected to work in a collaborative inter-institute environment

Job Requirements:

  • PhD in Biomaterials and Scaffold Design with relevant background and experience
  • Published experience in biomaterials & scaffold design, fabrication and characterization, controlled drug/gene delivery design and characterization
  • Published experience in evaluation of cellular response/interactions/functionality in response to scaffolds using western blotting, immunostaining, qPCR, fluorescent microscopy (confocal) imaging, functional assays is a plus
  • Experience in scaffold fabrication techniques like electrospinning, 3D bioprinting is a plus
  • Strong ability to communicate effectively orally and in written form
  • Strong ability to perform self-directed work
  • Strong organizational skills and proactive personality with outstanding motivation, creativity, critical and analytical thinking skills, strong scientific commitment and ability
