We are looking for a highly motivated individual to join the clinical diagnostics group in the Chilkoti lab at the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University as an associate in research. Our bioengineering lab combines cutting-edge techniques from various disciplines, including: surface chemistry, inkjet printing, 3D printing, nanofabrication, biomedical optics, and molecular biology. We combine these skill sets to develop innovative and clinically relevant point-of-care diagnostic technologies, particularly those aimed at democratizing access to healthcare in limited resource settings (see recent publication: https://www.pnas.org/content/114/34/E7054).
The candidate must have received laboratory experience in chemistry, engineering, and/or molecular biology, and have obtained an undergraduate degree and or master’s degree in biology, chemistry, engineering, or a related scientific discipline. The applicant must be detail-oriented, independent, proactive, well-organized, and able to manage multiple and changing priorities as needed to move experiments and the research program forward, in a fast-paced environment. Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a strong commitment to research and work ethic, and a positive attitude are required for this team-based position. The candidate must be able to follow instructions from the PI, set and achieve goals in a timely manner and function in a fast-paced environment.
