Postdoc Position in NanoBiotechnology

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the Micro and Nano Mechanics Laboratory within the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Northwestern University. Successful candidates will participate in a vibrant interdisciplinary research group and be involved in projects pursuing MEMS and probe-based techniques for biological studies at the single-cell level including chemo-mechanics and pathway studies. Collaborations are in place with investigators at the Northwestern Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center, the Feinberg School of Medicine, the International Institute for Nanotechnology, and Argonne and Sandia National Laboratories.

Requirements:

  1. A Ph.D. in the Biological Sciences, Chemistry or a related field
  2. Working experience in at least two of the following areas: cell culture, biological assays, gene/protein expression analysis, confocal/electron/atomic force microscopy, microfluidics, microfabrication, nanopatterning/self-assembly,
  3. Strong verbal and written communication skills.

 The position is available immediately for a period of one year and may be renewed thereafter. Actual start date is negotiable. Applications will be reviewed immediately and continue to be accepted until the positions are filled.
