We are seeking a self-motivated postdoctoral researcher in biomaterials. The Ideal candidate will have experience in design, fabrication, and testing of novel biomaterials, particularly biomimetic scaffolds and membranes for tissue engineering/wound healing applications. Expertise in tuning hydrogel or electrospun biomaterials for specific applications is valued. Analysis techniques including mechanical characterization of materials, as well as assessment of biocompatibility and cellular differentiation via gene expression, immunohistochemistry, qPCR, are requested.
