The BioMEMS Lab (http://wcm.ucalgary.ca/sanati-nezhad/) is seeking a postdoctoral fellow in the areas of microfluidics and biosensors, starting immediately. The successful candidate will develop a combined microfluidic + biosensors for rapid detection of cancer exosomes applicable for early cancer detection. The immediate focus will be developing an integrated microfluidic platform for point-of-care applications. This research will be performed within an excellent subgroup and in partnership with Canary Foundation and the Cancer Institute at the University of Calgary. Our labs are located in the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering building at the main campus of the University of Calgary. The successful candidate is expected to both lead independent research and contribute to research within a diverse multidisciplinary team by developing technologies, working with clinical/industrial partners and contributing to funding and commercialization efforts. Salary will be commensurate with level of experience.
Candidates must have a PhD in Engineering, Cancer Biology, or a relevant field, and have a strong track-record of academic excellence. We are open to (a) people with a microfluidic background with an interest in biomedical applications and cancer detection or (b) people with cancer biology background with cellular biology background and an interest in microfluidics.
Highly motivated applicants are invited to send a cover letter describing research interests, a CV, and a list of three references as a single PDF file to Amir Sanati-Nezhad (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please put "PDF Candidate_Microfluidics-Biosensors" in the subject line to reference this opportunity. Evaluation of candidates will begin immediately, and continue until filled. Employment as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Calgary is covered by the terms of the University of Calgary Collective Agreement.
