Job Details

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Associate position at the University of Maryland to work on a collaborative project between the Robert E. Fischell Institute for Biomedical Devices and the Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research (IBBR). The project aims to integrate biology with electronics using redox as a modality to bridge bio-electronic communication.  Successful candidate will couple electrochemistry with materials science (, and information processing ( to allow the observation and actuation of biological systems that range from individual proteins to consortia of microorganisms (

IBBR is a joint research enterprise of the University of Maryland, College Park, the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. IBBR leverages state-of-art integrative methods for bioanalytical, biophysical and structural characterization of biomolecules: cryo-electron microscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, x-ray crystallography, small angle neutron and x-ray scattering and mass spectrometry. IBBR researchers seek to advance therapeutic development, biomanufacturing, and state-of-the-art measurement technologies, to support accelerated delivery of safe and effective medicines to the public. IBBR is a major initiative and supported in part by the University of Maryland Strategic Partnership: MPowering the State (MPower) , an initiative designed to achieve innovation and impact through collaboration. 

Minimum Qualifications: Candidate must have a PhD in chemistry, physics, engineering or related field with a specialty in electrochemistry.

Preferences: Experience in one of more of the following areas would be beneficial but not necessary: soft matter, computer science and biological analysis.

Applications: Applicants should send their cover letter, curriculum vitae and names/contact information of three references to:
