Postdoctoral Position in Nanomedicine

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for an ambitious and result-oriented individual in nanomedicine to develop gold/liposomal hybrid nanoparticles for diagnostic and therapeutic applications. This interdisciplinary project at the interface of nanoscience, immunotherapies, nanoparticle/cellular interactions will allow the postodoctoral candidate to collaborate with researchers at the Vanderbilt Imaging Institute (VUIIS), Cancer Biology, and Biomedical Engineering. 

Qualifications: Ph.D. in Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, or relevant field. Specific expertise in one or more areas desired from the candidate reflected through high quality publications:

  • gold nanoparticles, liposomes, and general nanomaterial synthesis and bioconjugation 
  • nanomaterial characterization specifically expertise with atomic force microscopy
  • immunotherapies
  • Raman and fluorescence imaging
  • cell culture, tumor xenograft development
  • some basic biological techniques such as flow cytometry, IHC, WB

Experience and motivation will be taken strongly into consideration in the hiring process. Interested applicants should send a current CV and names of three references to Dr. Rizia Badhaan (rizia.bardhan@vanderbilt.edu)
