Openings for Postdoctoral Fellows, Prospective Graduate Students and Undergraduate Students

The Applied Micro-Bioengineering Lab is mainly interested in interdisciplinary and translational researches that leverage the engineering advances in micro/nanotechnology, biomaterials, microfluidics, and biomanufacturing for new and improved clinical solutions to emerging problems in cancer biology, immune engineering, and stem cell-based regenerative medicine. We are looking for postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students from a wide array of backgrounds (engineering, physics, chemistry, materials and cell and molecular biology) with demonstrated ingenuity, productivity, and ability to work in a diverse, high energy environment. Multiple research projects in the following areas are available and require close collaborations with NYU School of Medicine. We welcome inquiries about openings in our Lab.

1. Lab-on-a-Chip/Organ-on-a-Chip systems for cancer immunotherapy modeling.

2. Nanoplasmonic biosensing for single-cell analysis and cancer immunotherapy study.

3. Cell mechanobiology and biophysics in cardiovascular disease and stem cell biology.

Postdoctoral Fellows
We currently have multple NIH supported postdoctoral scholar openings in the areas of Lab-on-a-Chip/Organ-on-a-Chip, microfluidic biosensing, and cell mechanobiology. We are intersted candidates in the fields of immune, stem cell mechanobiology, Physical Oncology, or nanoplasmonic biosensing, Lab-on-a-Chip for single-cell sensing and cancer immunotherapy study. Thes projects require close collaborations with NYU School of Medicine. Applicants should send their cover letter, curriculum vitae, and key publications (preferred electronic format: pdf) through email to Prof. Weiqiang Chen (wchen@nyu.edu).

Research Opportunities for Graduate Students
Multiple research projects in the area of biomedical engineering are available for enthusiastic graduate students. The potential graduate students will work on research projects related to biomedical devices, biomechanics, and biomaterials for disease diagnosis and treatment. Research directions include exploring new engineering solutions for emerging problems in cancer biology, systems immunology, and stem cell-based regenerative medicine.

We are looking for graduate students from a wide array of backgrounds (engineering, physics, chemistry, materials and cell and molecular biology) with demonstrated ingenuity, productivity, and ability to work in a diverse, high energy environment. Candidates with backgrounds in biomaterials, micro/nanotechnology, microfluidics, tissue engineering, cancer biology, stem cell biology and immunology are prefered (but not required).

Interested applicants should send their cover letter, curriculum vitae, and any published paper or manuscript in preparation (preferred electronic format: pdf) through email to Prof. Weiqiang Chen by email (wchen@nyu.edu). Interested students can apply though either the Mechanical Engineering or the Biomedical Engineering PhD progeam.
