The Laboratory of Molecular Delivery in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNC / NC State is seeking a highly motivated bio-organic chemistry postdoctoral candidate to perform research in drug delivery, bioconjugation and evaluation of novel therapeutic agents. The successful candidate will be involved in design and synthesis of prodrug- and click-conjugated drugs and light-activated therapeutics for cancer chemotherapy and immunotherapy, intracranial drug delivery and for treatment of other diseases.

Applicant should have a PhD in chemistry or pharmaceutics and a demonstrated record of publications. The candidate will work as part of a small, motivated and interdisciplinary lab combining chemistry, biomaterials and drug delivery. We are seeking an independent and motivated student capable of designing synthetic routes, solving synthetic and bioconjugation problems and synthesizing target molecules.

Candidate is expected to have good communication skills. Knowledge of bioconjugation techniques, peptide or nucleic acid synthesis, aqueous chemistry and standard characterization techniques (NMR, UV-VIS, LC-MS, etc.) are a plus. The candidate should be interested in expanding their expertise to cell culture and small animal studies.

Prof. Brudno’s lab is a new lab located in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering working at the interface of chemistry, biomedical engineering and clinical needs. The multidisciplinary research focus provides unique and outstanding training and collaborating opportunities with clinicians. Dr. Brudno is committed to mentoring and training the candidate, providing all the support the candidate needs to reach their career goals.

Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, and the names and contact information of three references to: Dr. Yevgeny Brudno at ybrudno@ncsu.edu.
