Description:
The Mackiewicz Lab (http://sites.science.oregonstate.edu/~mackiewm/) is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher scholar to join our team in the Chemistry Department at Oregon State University (https://chemistry.oregonstate.edu/). We are developing solutions to overcome challenges in nanomaterials development for use as drug delivery, optical imaging, and cell-labeling in several biomedical applications with collaborative partners at multiple institutions in Oregon. We are working on nanomaterials developed to solve solutions in macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cancer. Our research includes synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials, mammalian cell culture, nanoparticle-biological interactions, and nanotoxicology. Candidates who have experience in nanomaterials synthesis, cell culture techniques as well as those who want to pursue areas of research of their own personal interests by writing grant applications or fellowships opportunities are encouraged to apply.
Qualifications:
The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering, chemistry, biochemistry, materials science, cell biology, immunology, chemical engineering, or related discipline. Preference will be given to applicants with experience in two or more of these areas:
• Nanoparticle synthesis, surface modification, and characterization
• Mammalian cell culture
• Tissue culture models
• Molecular biology methods
• Cell biology,
• Immunology/immunoengineering
• Optical and electron microscopy
The postdoctoral researcher will develop and implement research ideas, communicate, and coordinate with collaborators, write manuscripts, and present results at conferences/workshops. Therefore, candidates must demonstrate strong oral and written scientific communication skills for publications and grant writing opportunities. They must also have a strong willingness to mentor a diverse team of graduate and undergraduate students. The initial appointment period is one year, with the opportunity for renewal upon satisfactory performance.
Application Process:
Qualified applicants should email their application documents as a single PDF to Dr. Marilyn Mackiewicz (Marilyn.mackiewicz@oregonstate.edu). Please include a subject header in the Post-doctoral Scholar Position OSU. Requested application required documents include:
1. Cover letter (brief description of research experience, career goals/expectations, efforts to work with graduate and undergraduate students)
2. Curriculum Vitae
3. Research statement (including a summary of research achievements and any potential future research goals, no more than 2 pages)
4. List of references (minimum of three referees with names and contact information)
5. Two 1st author manuscripts (manuscripts must demonstrate relevant expertise)
Applications that are missing items or not in a single document will not be reviewed. Deadline to apply is January 20th, 2022.
