Interdisciplinary Biotechnology/Engineering
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 1/11/2019

Opportunity Description

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory Biotechnology Branch has an open postdoctoral opportunity at the intersection of engineering and life sciences. This opportunity will involve the development of advanced high-throughput microfluidic systems and label free sensing technologies, combined with synthetic biology, for accelerated discovery and study of a variety of microbial, and synthetically engineered biomaterials. Projects will address a broad range of advances in materials discovery and engineering for national security and defense applications. This opportunity presents a unique opportunity to spend significant time at the NanoBio Systems Lab at Texas A&M University in College Station, TX in collaborations with the U.S Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, MD and travel between the two locations as needed (with full support). The candidate should have completed their PhD prior to the fellowship appointment. The ideal participant will have experience in microfluidic devices including droplet microfluidic systems, working in a cleanroom, device/material fabrication, basic biological methods of cell culture and analysis. The selected canididate must hold U.S. Citizenship.
