Research Engineer, Biomedical Materials
We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a passion for medical research to assist in the development of a novel anti-thrombotic materials strategies for blood contacting medical devices. We will develop novel dual strategy approach, using surface morphology to control fluid-surface interactions to reduce flow stresses, and concurrently using selecting grafting of anti-thrombotic biochemicals, to achieve our goals.
The candidate will work with a postdoctoral scholar and a team of expert advisors to design and fabricate materials, prepare specific surface nano-morphology, perform selective grafting of anti-thrombotic compounds, and testing the resulting materials for flow mechanics and blood thrombosis response. Once the material is ready, we will continue with pre-clinical animal testing.
Bachelor in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, or Material Science. Experience and expertise in biomaterials and thrombosis biology will be an advantage.
At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students are one of our utmost priorities, and COVID-vaccination supports our commitment to ensure the safety of our community and to make NUS as safe and welcoming as possible. Many of our roles require a significant amount of physical interactions with students/staff/public members. Even for job roles that may be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presences are required.
In accordance with Singapore's legal requirements, unvaccinated workers will not be able to work on the NUS premises with effect from 15 January 2022. As such, job applicants will need to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated to secure successful employment with NUS.
