Research Associate (Postdoctoral Fellow)

Multiple postdoctoral positions are available in the lab of Dr. Assaf Gilad at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) and the Institute for Quantitative Health Science and Engineering (IQ) at Michigan State University.

The Department of BME offers a unique environment for performing state-of-the-art research with many of the top scientists in the field. The Gilad lab is transitioning from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and began operations starting September of 2017.

The research project focuses on:

  • Developing innovative technologies based on novel genes as well as protein engineering for activating cellular pathways, with anticipated variety of applications in both basic research and in the clinic.
  • Constructing Synthetic Biology circuits in prokaryotic and Mammalian (stem) cells.
  • Developing genetically encoded technologies for high-resolution (stem) cells visualization with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in the fields of regenerative medicine and immunotherapy.

Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology, protein expression and purification, synthetic biology or molecular engineering, nanotechnology, nanoparticle engineering and imaging are welcome to submit applications. Experience with bioinformatics or neuroscience is an advantage.

The candidate must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree. Please visit (reference job #453831) to submit a cover letter, CV, and names and contact information of 3 professional references.

For more information, please view Dr. Gilad, Professor of BME and Radiology, Chief of the Division of Synthetic Biology and Regenerative Medicine, publications at
