Research Fellow in Nanomedicine

Research Fellow in Nanomedicine at the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine

Young and research-intensive, Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) is ranked 13th globally. It is also placed 1st amongst the world’s best young universities.

The Laboratory of Nanomedicine and Tissue Engineering at Nanyang Technological University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, headed by Nanyang Assistant Professor Juliana Chan, is seeking two research fellows to conduct translational and multi-disciplinary research on nanotechnology-based therapies for applications in cancer and skin disease.

The research will focus on the design of novel targeted nanoparticle platforms for drug delivery with applications in cancer and skin disease, and candidates should have experience working on polymeric nanoparticles or liposomes for drug delivery.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biology, materials science, chemical engineering, biological engineering, biomedical sciences, nano-engineering or related fields. Previous publications in international peer reviewed journals are a prerequisite. They must possess excellent organization skills and be capable of individual initiative and of interacting as part of a team. 

Successful candidates will have knowledge and experience in at least a few of the following areas: 

· Polymeric nanoparticle or liposome design and characterization; 

· Cancer or skin disease models (in vitro and in vivo);

· Molecular biology techniques such as qPCR , RT-PCR, immunohistochemistry; and

· Experience with tumor mouse models and mouse handling is a plus.

The research fellow will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment with experienced biologists, engineers and clinician scientists. They will have access to leading edge resources, collaborations and core facilities at NTU. A competitive salary will be provided.

To apply, please submit your CV, list of publications, statement of research interest and names of three references at your earliest convenience to julianachan@ntu.edu.sg

Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. All applications and materials submitted will be held in strict confidence.
