Applications are invited from qualified candidates for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in the Lin Research Group at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). The lab is located adjacent to Indiana University School of Medicine at Indianapolis and we are part of the Purdue University academic system and are affiliated with Indiana University Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center and Indiana Center for Diabetes & Metabolic diseases. Our research focuses on designing multifunctional polymeric biomaterials, including hydrogels, nanoparticles, and cell surface coatings, for releasing therapeutically relevant agents and for delivering adult, stem, and progenitor cells for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. Our research projects are highly interdisciplinary and integrate knowledge from polymer chemistry and engineering, bioconjugate chemistry, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology, and immunology. For this position, we are looking for a post-doc level research scientist with interests and experience in developmental cell and molecular biology and stem cell differentiation.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry and Biochemistry, Cell & Molecular Biology, or other stem cell related fields. In addition to traditional cell and molecular biology techniques, we are particularly interested in scientists with strong background in single-cell sequencing, transcriptome, proteome, and other next gen sequencing. Candidates should have excellent oral and written communication skills and have experience/interests on mentoring graduate and undergraduate students. Interested individuals should prepare application materials, including (1) a cover letter summarizing past research experience, future research interests, and career plan; and (2) a detailed CV with a list of publications and names of at least 3 references.
