Graduate Research Assistant/Postdoctoral Researcher Position Available
Dr. Ping Wang’s research lab in Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is looking for candidates at the level of Graduate Research Assistant and Postdoctoral Researcher to join a cutting-edge translational research team. The research focus of the lab is to develop novel in vitro diagnostic technologies and assays, with the aim of translating bench techniques to clinical applications, including but not limited to point-of-care clinical applications. The goal is to use these technologies to enhance the ability to diagnose and monitor diseases earlier, more rapidly and more accurately. The research team will work at the intersection between engineering, nanotechnology and clinical diagnostics, with the unique opportunity to quickly test research products with clinical samples and pilot in the end-user environment.
The successful candidate will have strong background in engineering, nanotechnology or chemistry, and also a strong interest to pursue translational research geared towards application. Postdoctoral candidates should have PhD degree with biology or chemistry or engineering training. Prior experience in the field of diagnostic assay development is a plus but not required. Must be a self-driven individual, organized and detail-oriented, with excellent writing and communication skills.
