Postdoctoral researcher with a background in 3D printing and/or additive manufacturing of biomaterials and medical devices

 

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoctoral researcher who is highly committed to developing successful research careers with a background in 3D printing and/or additive manufacturing of biomaterials and medical devices. A strong background in areas such as biomechanics, materials science, or tissue engineering would be highly advantageous. Proficiency in basic programming for 3D printing and imaging software, or the ability to develop and optimize design and manufacturing processes, is preferred.

 

The postdoctoral researchers will be mentored by the Co-Directors (Dr. Shiladitya Sengupta and Dr. Hae Lin Jang) and faculty members at the Center for Engineered Therapeutics (https://cetbwh.org), which is located at the rich ecosystem of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology (HST). The Center for Engineered Therapeutics provides an interdisciplinary research environment where biomedical engineers, biologists, chemists, pharmacists, material scientists, and clinicians work together to solve biological challenges with holistic and creative approaches. We develop novel biotechnologies for clinical translation based on the understanding of biological mechanisms. We love addressing exciting and hard problems that will have a high impact on patients’ lives. Please check our publications (examples of our research articles include https://www.nature.com/articles/s41565-021-01000-4 and https://www.nature.com/articles/s41551-022-00950-x.)

 

The center will provide training in experiment design, result analysis, scientific writing, and other guidance for career development. We are fully equipped for synthetic chemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology, material synthesis and characterization, biomedical engineering, immunochemistry, in vitro assays and in vivo studies. In addition to professional research training in the center, the researchers will be exposed to high-level seminars and conferences held at Harvard and MIT.

 

Minimum Education and Experience Requirements: Postdoctoral researcher candidates will have completed highly relevant doctoral training in chemistry or material science/biomedical engineering-related areas and awarded a Ph.D., M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or equivalent prior to starting research at the center. Candidates who already have post-doctoral training experience are also eligible.

 

Interested applicants should send a curriculum vitae to the Center for Engineered Therapeutics (cet.bwh@gmail.com), Dr. Shiladitya Sengupta (shiladit@mit.edu), and Dr. Hae Lin Jang (hjang@bwh.harvard.edu). Please also check our center website https://cetbwh.org ("Join Us" section).

 

Additional information: Preferred candidates will have a strong publication record.
