The Nano-Thermal Bioengineering Laboratory (NT-BEL) at The University of Texas at Dallas is looking for one Postdoctoral Researcher with a background in neuroscience to work on the development of neuro nanotechnology for brain drug delivery via blood-brain barrier opening, and nano uncaging to modulate neuron activity in the brain.
To apply, please send a cover letter, your CV with contact information of at least 3 references, and PDF copies of publications to Dr. Zhenpeng Qin by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). In the cover letter, please briefly describe your research experience, career plan, earliest starting date, and etc. The position is open immediately and we anticipate filling the position as soon as possible.
• Experience in blood-brain barrier or neuroscience such as electrophysiology • Experience in small animal work • Experience in nanomaterials is a plus • Teamwork spirit and strong motivation is essential.
Additional Salary Information: Salary depends on experience level and will be negotiated.
The NanoThermal Bioengineering Laboratory (NT-BEL) focuses on fundamental understanding of the bio-nano interface and translating this to biomedical applications. Current efforts focus on the thermo-plasmonic fundamentals and its effects at the interface between biological systems and nanomaterials. Specifically, experimental techniques and methods will be developed to understand the effects of na...noparticle plasmonic heating on proteins and other biomolecules immediately surrounding the nanoparticle. This leads to new enabling tools for fundamental research, and to applications in both diagnostic and therapeutic areas.
We are always inviting the most motivated individuals to join our laboratory and the growth and success of our team members are our highest priority. With the interdisciplinary nature of the work, we seek and recruit talented candidates with different backgrounds (engineering, biology, chemistry etc).
