The Vijay lab in the Engineering Division, New York University Abu Dhabi, seeks to recruit a research assistant in Bioprinting, Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering to work on the development, characterization, and testing of biomaterials (polymers and hydrogels) for bioprinting of tissue constructs.
The successful applicant will be part of a fascinating project on the advanced bioprinting strategies for the in vitro culture of cells and tissues. The PI's previous works has proved the advantages of bioprinting over manual culture methods and the versatility of the process to fabricate a biomimetic architecture (i.e.) to mimic the native human tissue both in terms of structure and function. To get further insights, the candidate will be involved in developing several novel biomaterials including polymers and hydrogels with a broad range of mechanical and electrical properties and biological functionalities. Applications for these printed biomaterials will include bone, cartilage, nerve and skin tissue engineering.
Responsibilities will include but not limited to:
Biomaterial (polymers) and bioink (hydrogels) development, preparation and characterization
3D Bioprinting of scaffolds and cell-laden hydrogels
Staining, characterization and microscopy of printed constructs
Analysis and interpretation of data, deriving meaningful conclusions
The candidate will work in a multidisciplinary environment consisting of PhD-level scientists, graduate students and undergraduate students and will interact with several scientists from other disciplines.
Applicants must have a undergraduate/master's degree in biological, chemical, or physical sciences, or biomedical/chemical/materials science engineering or related field with a specific focus on biomaterials, 3D printing / Bioprinting, or Tissue Engineering. Knowledge of bioprinting is desirable but not mandatory.
The terms of employment include highly competitive salary, medical insurance, housing allowance, and educational subsidies for children as well as other benefits. Applications will be accepted immediately and candidates will be considered until the position is filled.
For consideration, applicants need to submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae with full publication list, transcript of degree, statement of research interests, one or two representative publications, and contact information of three references, all in PDF format. If you have any questions, please email Prof. Vijay at email@example.com
