Postdoctoral Associate - School of Biomedical Engineering
The Michael Shuler research group in Biomedical Engineering and the Harold Craighead group in Applied & Engineering Physics seeks a Postdoctoral Research Associate specializing in nanobiotechnology. The candidate will work on two closely related projects funded by NIH. One project is entitled "An Organotypic Model Recapitulating Colon Cancer Microenvironment and Metastasis" with Cleveland Clinic being the lead institution and Duke and Cornell subcontractors. The other project is entitled "Automation and Validation of Human on a Chip Systems for Drug Discovery" with Hesperos, Inc. being the lead institution and University of Central Florida and Cornell being subcontractors. For both projects, the candidate will design and create microscale systems to emulate aspects of human physiology and response to various drugs. A recent review of research in these microphysiological systems (or body-on-a-chip) is available (Sung, et al. 2019, Anal. Chem. 91: 330-351).
The successful candidate will have a PhD in engineering, physics or biology. Demonstrated experience and expertise in the techniques of microfabrication and mammalian cell culture are essential. Additionally, experience with microphysiological systems, iPS cells, mathematical modeling of microscale system, fluid dynamics, reaction engineering, molecular biology and HPLC are desirable.
Cornell offers excellent facilities for microfabrication through it Cornell Nanofabrication Facility (CNF). Access to state of the art facilities for the culture and use of mammalian cell cultures is available in the Shuler Laboratory.
The successful candidate will have fluency in written and spoken English and ability to work well with other stakeholders. Additionally, a strong record of prior success, as indicated by peer review publications is expected.
