We look for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow (this position will be supported by an NIH R01 grant). We broadly study vascular and lymphatic biology, cancer biology, immunology, and regenerative medicine by employing 3D tissue engineering, organs-on-chip, organoids in vitro platforms, molecular biology methods, and in vivo animal models. Below is the expertise we seek, but it can be flexible based on the candidate's background and interest.
Designing, fabrication (soft lithography), and characterization of microfluidic devices, lab-on-chip, organ-on-chip, 3D cellularity, tissue level in vitro modeling
Cornell University is an innovative Ivy League university and a great place to work. Our inclusive community of scholars, students and staff contribute creative ideas to further the university's mission of teaching, discovery, and engagement. The main campus in Ithaca sits at the southern tip of Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. The Ithaca area offers a small-town lifestyle with the cultural and culinary qualities of larger cities, including the Moosewood Restaurant known for the first vegetarian cookbook. The climate of the region provides for a range of outdoor activities including boating/sailing, swimming, mountain biking and hiking in summer, to skiing and ice skating in winter.
The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering is located in the College of Engineering on Cornell’s main campus in Ithaca, New York, with strong collaborative ties to the College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, and Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. Our global presence includes College of Medicine campuses in Manhattan and Doha, Qatar, and the Cornell Tech campus on Roosevelt Island in New York City.
Fundamental and applied research, and translational development are supported by an extensive network of centers and institutes (https://research.cornell.edu/content/centers-institutes-programs- laboratories) including the Cornell Center on the Physics of Cancer Metabolism, Cornell Neurotechnology NeuroNex Hub, Cornell Center for Materials Research, Cornell Nanoscale Facility, Kavli Institute at Cornell for Nanoscale Science, and the Kevin M. McGovern Family Center for Venture Development in the Life Sciences.
