Job Description

Postdoctoral research opportunities are available at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI) for outstanding candidates to apply state-of-the-art microfluidics, organs on a chip, sensors, and tissue engineering techniques to create tissue models and study drug interactions. The project will be interdisciplinary and fast-paced with multiple institutions. Terasaki Research Institute is developing ‘personalized’ solutions that utilize micro- and nanoscale technologies to enable a range of therapies for organ failure, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. To enable this vision, the institute works closely with clinicians including interventional radiologists, cardiologists, and surgeons. Headed by Dr. Khademhosseini, the institute has numerous projects including the use of patient-derived cells to engineer artificial tissues and cell-based therapies; organ-on-a-chip systems that aim to mimic human physiology and pathology and enable patient-specific evaluation of drug candidates; and novel biomaterials as sealants and adhesives.


Job requirements:


Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, mechanical/chemical engineering, or related disciplines.
A strong record of publications.
Experience in microfluidics, organs on a chip, and sensors is desired and a considerable plus.
The fellow is expected to work in a highly interdisciplinary environment and drive scientific and technical innovation with other members of the group, as well as with the Terasaki research community.
Outstanding communication skills including both oral and written presentation are required.
Previous experience with mammalian cells andmicroscopic imaging are desired but not required.
