Bioinspired Materials

Applicants for this position are expected to have a strong background in experimental inorganic or materials chemistry and establish an independent, rigorous, externally funded research group in the area of bioinspired or biomimetic chemistry with overlapping applications in (but not limited) to:

  • cell-material interactions
  • drug discoveries
  • biomimicking systems
  • bioinspired smart materials

Full description and application


Functional Materials and Synthetic Biology

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, materials science, polymer science, or a closely related discipline.

  • For the functional materials position, preference will be given to candidates who possess expertise in materials synthesis and characterization and a record of engineering smart materials for applications in both fundamental and translational research. 
  • For the synthetic biology position, preference will be given to candidates with expertise in the design and construction of new biological parts, devices, and systems, or redesign of existing, natural biological systems for useful purposes. A strong commitment to collaborative, cross-disciplinary research is especially desirable.
