Research Assistant III- Biology/Hematology

We are seeking a motivated Research Assistant to work in biology and hematology within our Biomimetic Microsystems platform. The candidate will be a part of a multidisciplinary team working on developing a number of state-of-the-art processes to improve the hemocompatiblity of medical device materials and to separate pathogens from infected blood. The candidate will be responsible for performing experiments with blood to determine hemocompatibility of the materials both in vitro and in vivo, immunoassays (ELISAs), microscopy, histology, flow Cytometry and molecular biology as well as assay development. In vivo studies will involve evaluating the biocompatibility and efficacy of materials in Swine. In addition, the candidate will perform surface modification of medical devices and protein conjugation in order to characterize biocompatibility of devices and efficacy of pathogen separation. The position will require the candidate to work in a multidisciplinary team of biologists, chemists and engineers, interact in a collegial and fluid manner with other scientists and staff at the Wyss Institute, present his/her work at weekly meetings and write appropriate scientific articles and patent applications.
