Postdoc Position in Single Cell Deposition at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoctoral scholar position. The deadline to apply is January 18, 2019.

The Biointerface Group at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge is looking for a part-time Research Associate to lead the effort on designing, developing and building a state-of-the-art functional single cell deposition system. Our group is a multi-disciplinary group which has strong interest and expertise in developing organ-on-a-chip platforms and 3D bioprinting technology (see: http://www.eng.cam.ac.uk/profiles/yysh2). We expect this project to establish possibility and suitability of a high-resolution deposition system for cells and also to study their viability and interactions with the system by tuning and optimisation of the system parameters.

The successful candidate should have a PhD in mechanical, mechatronics or biomedical engineering, preferably with a number of years of instrument development experience. They can have experience in one or more of the following areas: precision motion control (particularly piezo driven systems), deposition of functional materials, instrumentation and control, printing technologies and automated cell processing technique. Knowledge in biomaterials and cell cultures are a plus but not essential.

Candidates are expected to be good communicators, independent thinkers, and have the ability to bring out-of-the-box solutions to problems. They should be able to operate in a highly interdisciplinary environment involving engineers, cell biologists, biochemists, and medics.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available until 31 January 2020 in the first instance.

Please ensure that you upload your Curriculum Vitae (CV) with publication list, and a covering letter in the Upload section of the online application. If you upload any additional documents which have not been requested, we will not be able to consider these as part of your application. Please submit your application by midnight on the closing date.

If you have any questions about this vacancy or the application process, please contact Mrs Anna Walczyk at aw571@cam.ac.uk.
