The University of California Center for Environmental Implications of Nanotechnology (UC CEIN) and the UCLA Division of NanoMedicine at the University of California, Los Angeles are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to join a multi-disciplinary team exploring the biological use potential and health & safety impacts of engineered nanomaterials. The main objective of the research is to identify the mechanisms linking nanomaterial physicochemical properties to biological and hazardous outcomes in tissue culture cells (in vitro) and in animal models (in vivo). We envisage a major impact of these materials on modulation of the innate immune response, reticuloendothelial system and the liver.

Professors Andre Nel and Tian Xia (Division of Nanomedicine) are looking for a highly qualified Postdoctoral Researcher with superior knowledge of biology, immunology, nanosafety, and nanomaterial science. The successful candidate will possess interdisciplinary skills and hands-on experience in conducting in vitro and in vivo bioanalytical and biophysical characterization procedures, conducting cellular and animal studies based on a detailed understanding of nanomaterial properties. Postdoctoral researcher will assist in planning of experiments, methods development, data reduction, and manuscript preparation as part of this project.

Candidate must have completed their PhD in Biology, Toxicology, or Immunology and have hands-on experience in the use of nanotechnology. Applicants who have already served more than 3 years as a Postdoctoral Researcher are not eligible to apply. Please forward curriculum vitae and 3 references to David Avery, Chief Administrative Officer, UC CEIN (avery@ucla.edu).

Direct applications only – NO AGENCIES.
