Postdoctoral Research Associate: Microfluidics and Bio/Nanotechnology

Bionano Interface Laboratory at Lehigh University has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral research associate. Applicants are expected to utilize micro/nanotechnology in biomedical applications. Experience on working with cells (red blood cells, tumor cells etc), microfluidic devices for cell manipulation, nanoparticles for targeted drug delivery, MEMS/NEMS, AFM, and biosensing are preferred. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in bioengineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or a related discipline and must have an outstanding academic record. Interested applicants should send, via e-mail, a cover letter describing their background and interest in the position, a C.V., an electronic copy of a representative publication, and a list of 3 references to: Dr. Yaling Liu Department of Bioengineering Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics yal310@lehigh.edu

RA/TA positions for PhD students (BME or ME)

Research assistantships/scholarships are available for Ph.D. students in Nanotechnology, Microfluidics, Biomechanics, Manufacturing at Lehigh University. The students are expected to have a good education and research background in either experimental microfluidics/nanomechanics/bioengineering or numerical modeling. The student will use combined experimental and numerical methods to study biophysical phenomena in cells and biomolecules and micro/nanofluidic problems in MEMS/NEMS, from continuum to nanoscale. Students familiar with microfabrication, cellular/molecular biology, surface functionalization, fluid/solid mechanics and atomistic simulation are highly encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in positions above, please contact Dr. Liu at yal310@lehigh.edu. Please email your CV along with a cover letter expressing your background and research interests.
