Job Title:

Research Assistant / Postdoctoral Researcher (Biofabrication / Sacrificial Molding)

Scope of the Research:

This research program intends to develop design principles and fabrication methods to create microchannels inside cell-laden hydrogels. We develop innovative ways to use sacrificial structures that can be removed to form microchannels in aqueous biological conditions. We combine additive manufacturing, microfluidics, and in situ physio-chemical reactions to achieve the goal. The fabricated perfusable constructs are used as tissue/vasculature surrogates.

We adopt interdisciplinary approaches to investigate unexplored dimensions of biofabrication. Examples include but not limited to:

  • To fabricate well-defined micro and nanostructures with additive manufacturing
  • To characterize the performance of sacrificial structures in various conditions
  • To investigate the relationship between structures, functions, and cell growth
  • To develop methods/instruments of additive manufacturing to achieve the goal
  • To apply the bio-fabricated constructs for biomedical and clinically relevant studies

The researcher will work in an interdisciplinary research team consisting of electrical, chemical and biomedical engineers, chemists and materials scientists. The researcher also works with oversea collaborators.

Qualification, Skills, Experiences:

  • M.S./B.S. (for research assistants) or Ph.D. (for postdoctoral researcher) in chemistry, biology, bioengineering, materials sciences and/or related fields.
  • Must have experiences in cell culture and microscopy
  • Good to have experiences in microfluidics, microfabrication
  • Good to have experiences in the design and manufacturing of scientific instruments
  • Good to have experiences in digital fabrication, CAD, and 3D drawing and modeling
  • Good track record of scientific publications
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English
