The Syracuse Biomaterials Institute and the Departments of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering (BMCE) and Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at Syracuse University invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research position, scheduled to begin in the fall of 2019. The Postdoctoral Researcher will spearhead integrated, interdisciplinary experimentation and simulation to study fundamental properties of functional polymeric materials and to advance fabrication paradigms to develop new platform technologies to understand and treat injury and disease. Strong commitment to collaborative, cross-disciplinary research is especially desirable, as the researcher will work collaboratively within the labs of James Henderson (functional materials), Pranav Soman (biofabrication), and Teng Zhang (modeling). Demonstration of past accomplishment toward fostering diversity and building an inclusive climate in research is of great importance. The faculty advisors will help the fellow develop a tailored Individual Development Plan to advance his/her professional goals. The fellow will work within the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute, which offers world class facilities and a highly collaborative research environment.
