The research technician will develop next-generation micro-structured drug delivery and diagnostic devices for multiple therapeutic applications, through a highly multidisciplinary approach. The successful candidate for this position will be responsible for micro-fabrication, formulating drug delivery/diagnostic systems from them, and for their in vitro and in vivo evaluation. Experiences in polymers, assay development and/or micro-fabrication are essential and experiences in drug delivery, HPLC, basic biological techniques (e.g., ELISA), and formulating animal trials are plus. The candidate should have strong organizational and communication skills for assisting and collaborating with multidisciplinary groups of technology innovators and engineers, as well as biologists and clinicians, in a dynamic team environment.
Qualifications: Bachelor or Master in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or related degree. Ideally should have ample experience in micro-fabrication, drug delivery, micro-sensors, polymers or related experience.
The Karp Lab is a dynamic and fast paced environment that thrives on collaboration and ingenuity. We have a diverse, international talent pool, simultaneously working on multiple projects across several disease areas. We are focused on the development of platform technologies supporting a broad range of potential applications in medicine and bioengineering. Our emphasis on translational research enables us to train the next generation of bioengineers and expand the boundaries of this exciting field. With that in mind, the Karp Lab looks for members with highly developed interpersonal skills who could contribute to our dynamic lab community.
