Multiple postdoctoral positions are available at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI). The TIBI is developing personalized solutions that utilize micro- and nanoscale technologies to enable a range of therapies for organ failure, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. To enable this vision, the institute works closely with clinicians including interventional radiologists, cardiologists, and surgeons. Headed by Dr. Khademhosseini, the institute has numerous projects including the use of patient-derived cells to engineer artificial tissues and cell-based therapies; organ-on-a-chip systems that aim to mimic the human physiology and pathology and enable patient-specific evaluation of drug candidates; and novel biomaterials as sealants and adhesives.
Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering
For this particular job opening, we are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who can work on synthesis and engineering of functional biomaterials as sealants and tissue engineered scaffolds. This work is funded by the NIH and has the potential to solve major issues in regeneration of tissues or repair of defects in a minimally invasive manner.
Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Microfluidics and Organs on a Chip
For this particular job opening, we are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who can work in a highly interdisciplinary environment and drive scientific and technical innovation with other members of the group, as well as with the Terasaki research community. This outstanding candidate will apply state-of-the-art microfluidics, organs on a chip, sensors, and tissue engineering techniques to create tissue models and study drug interactions.
Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Flexible Electronics and Microfluidics
For this particular job opening, we are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to apply state-of-the-art microfluidics, flexible electronics and hydrogels to develop novel biomedical devices.
Postdoctoral Researcher Position: Cancer and Immunotherapy
For this particular job opening, we are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who can work on tumor cell biology, 3D tumoroid culture, and immunotherapy (virotherapy, CAR-T, immune checkpoint inhibitor). The applicants will be joined in the project understanding cancer development using tumor-on-a-chip as well as anti-cancer immuno-therapeutics.
The Institute seeks to recruit, flourish, and retain exceptional researchers with outstanding talent and technical skills as Terasaki Fellows. The Fellows will help advance the Institute’s vision and output in biomedical innovation. The Fellowships are intended for brilliant applicants with outstanding expertise and achievements who received their PhD or MD degree within the last five years.
We are primarily seeking candidates in the areas below, but exceptional candidates in other areas will also be considered:
