Job Title:

Research Assistant / Postdoctoral Researcher (Smart Film-based Devices)

Scope of the Research:

This research program intends to develop design principles and fabrication methods for thin-film devices. The device is intended for use on the skin to perform sensing, monitoring, and drug administration.

We combine additive manufacturing, microfluidics, and in situ physio- chemical reactions to achieve unprecedented control over multi-cellular structures to facilitate their growth and function.

We adopt interdisciplinary approaches to investigate unexplored dimensions of bioprinting. Examples include but are not limited to:

  • To fabricate well-defined micro and nanostructures
  • To fabricate hierarchical structures with well-defined inner morphologies of the scaffold
  • To investigate the relationship between structures, functions, and cell growth
  • To develop methods/instruments of additive manufacturing applicable for cell-laden inks
  • To automate the process of complex fabrication
  • To develop bioprinting instruments intended for use in the specific requirement
  • The researcher will work in an interdisciplinary research team consisting of electrical, chemical and biomedical engineers, chemists and materials scientists. The researcher also works with overseas collaborators.

    Qualification, Skills, Experiences:

  • M.S./B.S. (for research assistants) or Ph.D. (for postdoctoral researcher) in chemistry, biology, bioengineering, polymer engineering, materials sciences and/or related fields.
  • Must have experiences in cell culture
  • Experiences in microfluidics, microfabrication
  • Experiences in the design and manufacturing of scientific instruments
  • Experiences in digital fabrication, CAD, and 3D drawing and modelling
  • Good track record of scientific publications
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills in English
  • Applications close: 31 May 2022 Singapore Standard Time
