Post-doctoral Research Position Available

A highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. or equivalent in an engineering or bioscience field with proven expertise related to genetic engineering of mammalian cells for expression of recombinant proteins and animal cell culturing is being sought for a post doctoral position at the Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.  The ultimate goal of this project in our laboratory is to develop and characterize a pancreatic substitute based on non-beta cells engineered for physiologically responsive insulin secretion.  The post-doctoral associate will use techniques in molecular and cell biology, genetic engineering, microscopy, in vitro cell culturing, biomaterials, and small animal experimentation to develop and assess the efficacy of cells and tissue substitutes.  Our laboratory is part of the Georgia Tech/Emory Center for the Engineering of Living Tissues and of the Parker H. Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, which provides abundant opportunities for interaction with world experts in cell and tissue engineering, biomaterials, biomechanics, immunology, and clinical medicine. Strong English speaking and writing skills are absolute essentials, as well as a track record of peer reviewed publications as first author.  The candidate must be able to conduct independent research while collaborating with others in an interdisciplinary environment.  The initial appointment will be for one year with the intention of extending this for an additional one or two years.  Qualified applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae and names, addresses, and phone numbers of three references to:
