The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University invites applications for an Associate position in the Bioinspired Therapeutics & Diagnostics Platform.
The mission of the Wyss Institute is to discover the engineering principles that Nature uses to build living things, 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. We seek outstanding applicants for an interdisciplinary Associate position in microfluidics and bioengineering, specifically for the development of Organs-on-Chips biomimetic microsystems.
Applicants are expected to hold a bachelor’s with a track record of research in a field related to cell biology, pharmacology, or bioengineering and to have an interest in biological applications using Microengineering and microfluidic based techniques. The candidate should be open-minded, creative, energetic and bring expertise and experimental background in at least one of the fields of cell and developmental biology, computational or systems biology, microfluidics, microfabrication, bioengineering or systems engineering. Preference will be given to candidates with a proven ability to design and build novel microfluidic microsystems and employ them for cell biological applications. Basic knowledge of molecular cell biology (cell culture, basic molecular biology concepts and techniques) and microscopy techniques is also required.
Applications, assembled as single pdf files, should contain a C.V., a cover letter describing research interests and goals 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 using the subject line “Associate BTD”.
