Drexel University, School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems

Research Technician – 1 Position

One research technician position is available immediately in the NanoBiomechanics Lab (PI: Dr. Lin Han, https://linhanlab.com/) at Drexel University. The lab tackles the interdisciplinary challenges in the development, regeneration and degeneration of biological tissue extracellular matrix (ECM). The lab integrates novel approaches in nanotechnology, biomaterials, biomechanics, matrix biology and gene therapy. They are looking for a highly motivated individual with a B.S. or M.S. degree in a relevant area (cell and molecular biology, biomedical engineering, biochemistry, biophysics, or related field), who will be responsible for the maintenance of mouse colonies and biological analysis of genetic mouse phenotype. For more information, (PDF).

 

Post-doctoral Associate – 2 Positions

Two NIH-funded post-doctoral associate positions are available immediately in the NanoBiomechanics Lab (PI: Dr. Lin Han, https://linhanlab.com/) at Drexel University. The lab tackles the interdisciplinary challenges in the development, regeneration and degeneration of biological tissue extracellular matrix (ECM). Successful candidates will lead one of the two projects: 1) primitive collagen in the progenitor cell mechanobiology and regeneration of fibrous-hyaline cartilage hybrid matrix, 2) decellularized extracellular matrix for stem cell chondrogenesis and cartilage regeneration. Highly motivated individuals with a Ph.D. in a relevant area (biomaterials, musculoskeletal bioengineering, cartilage biology/mechanobiology or related disciplines) are encouraged to apply.
