The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University invites applications for a number of postdoctoral fellow positions. The mission of the Wyss Institute is to discover the engineering principles that Nature uses to build living things; to pursue the high-risk research that is fundamental to advance this effort; and to harness these insights to create biologically inspired materials and devices to advance human health and improve the environment – thereby revolutionizing clinical medicine and creating a more sustainable world.
A Ph.D. in a related field is required as is a background in synthetic biology, living materials or biological control. Candidates are specifically sought for the following enabling technology platforms: Adaptive Materials Technologies; Anticipatory Medical and Cellular Devices; Biomaterials Evolution; Biomimetic Microsystems; Programmable Nanomaterials and Bioinspired Robotics. For more specific information, please visit our website at http://www.wyss.harvard.edu.
Applications, assembled as single pdf files, should contain a C.V., a cover letter describing research interests and goals, a full list of publications, copies of up to three relevant scientific papers, and names and contact information for at least three writers of letters of recommendation, who might be contacted as references. Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
