Department Engn - Mech & Aerospace Engn Salary Commensurate With Experience Posting Summary

Dr. Jonathan P. Singer, Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, USA) is seeking applications from qualified individuals for a full-time postdoctoral associate position working on a collaborative industrial grant in the field of vaccine delivery. The position will begin as early as March, 2022 and looks build on our current effort, which has been translated into clinical trials. The primary role of a successful candidate will be to develop electrospray technology for the efficient deposition of bioactive coatings. The position will also involve the furthering technologies for the delivery of the coated materials into living tissue. The associate will be responsible for the assembly of custom experimental setups, the optimization of solutions for the processing of coatings, and various materials analysis of fabricated coatings including in vitro and possibly in vivo experiments. Dr. Singer's lab, the Hybrid Micro/Nanomanufacturing Laboratory (HMNL, https: //, develops techniques that incorporate designer nanostructures into high- throughput manufacturing. The HMNL's objective is to enable industrial, biomedical, and consumer products with the benefits of nanostructure-induced functionality, with applications spanning healthcare, aerospace propulsion and acoustics, waste energy harvesting, agriculture, and anti-corrosion barriers.
