New Research Position in Chemical and Biomedical Engineering

A fully-funded master fellowship in animal behavior is available at Nanyang Technological University. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

A project officer position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sing Yian CHEW at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, to a highly motivated candidate who has a passion for in vivo Spinal Cord Injury scaffold implantation treatment and neural tissue engineering research.

The focus of this project is to evaluate tissue engineered scaffolds for in vivo neural tissue regeneration. We are seeking an individual who is highly interested in working with rats; conducting animal implantation experiments; carrying out animal behavioral tests; and characterizing/evaluating scaffold-cell/tissue interactions through immunofluorescent and histochemical staining and imaging.

This position offers a unique opportunity to apply in vivo experimentation skills to neural tissue engineering, through strong collaborative efforts with scientists and engineers.

The candidate will be given opportunities and is expected to design and execute experiments independently. He/she is also expected to work together with lab members to interpret experimental results, and co-author papers in high-quality journals in areas that are related to the research. The candidate should demonstrate excellent communication skills and should have a strong passion and commitment to science. He/she will also work closely with the Principal Investigator to help to ensure smooth functioning of an active research program. The candidate will have the opportunity to explore his/her own interests across functions.

Bachelors level scientist.

Proficiency in neural tissue engineering and spinal cord injury is a plus.

Experience in rodent models, proficiency in neural tissue engineering and spinal cord injury is an advantage.

Experience in immunofluorescent and histochemical staining of tissues, evaluation of tissue response/interactions using fluorescent microscopy (confocal) imaging is preferred.

Strong ability to communicate effectively orally and in written form.

Strong ability to perform self-directed work.
