Postdoc Position in Micro-raman Spectroscopy of Cells and Tissues

A new opening postdoctoral researcher position in spectroscopy is available at Imperial College London, UK. Eligible candidates should submit the applications before February 25, 2019.

The Department of Materials wishes to appoint a Research Associate to characterise tissues and cells as well as understand cell behaviour and response to biomaterials by applying Raman spectroscopy as a characterisation technique. These applications of Raman spectroscopy will be to elucidate interactions at the cell-material interface for a number of material systems, including nano and micro-materials. This post is based within the Biomaterials group at Imperial College London, working with Professor Molly Stevens and involve collaborations with a number of other internationally recognised stem cell, biomaterials and (nano)materials research groups. The Stevens Group has received numerous awards for outstanding biomaterials related research ( and comprises a very international and multidisciplinary group of Research Fellows and PhD students.

Applying Raman spectroscopy for investigations of innovative nanomaterials, micromaterials and scaffolds in regenerative medicine applications as well as cells and tissues to quantify their interactions and responses towards the presence of innovative materials-based and bio-inspired approaches, developing Matlab-based chemometrics and multivariate algorithms to facilitate analyses of large datasets. This post will be active within a vibrant and multidisciplinary environment comprising multiple projects.

This post is to apply state-of-the-art Raman spectroscopic techniques to characterise a number of material systems and their interactions with cells and tissues. This post will liaise closely with researchers trained in a wide array of faculties, including nanomaterials, engineering, as well as biology (with focus areas ranging from e.g. cancer, cardiac, and stem cells). The RA will take a leading role in working with other PDRAs and PhDs in our multidisciplinary group.

You will be a conscientious, innovative experimental scientist with significant experience in Raman spectroscopy who has successfully completed a PhD (or equivalent) in physics, biomedical engineering, optical bioimaging or materials science or a bioengineering discipline or similar. Experience in applying Raman spectroscopy to materials and cells for applications in regenerative medicine and bioapplications is required and essentialCandidates/post holders will be expected to demonstrate the following
