Open Positions

Postdoctoral Associate – LbL Nanoparticle Systems for Biofilm Targeting against Antimicrobial Resistance:  This opening is located at the MIT-Singapore SMART Program at the CREATE Center Campus at the (1 CREATE Way), NUS, Singapore, and is in collaboration with efforts at the Nanyang Technological University.  The P.T. Hammond research lab at SMART-MIT, in collaboration with the M.B.E. Chan Lab at NTU, Singapore, will develop electrostatically assembled nanolayered particles for the targeting of infections in biofilms.  We seek to investigate these systems with the ultimate intent of developing promising systems that can be translated to meaningful clinical applications. The position requires a highly motivated and independent researcher with strong biomaterials background, and experience with polymer synthesis and characterization, cell culture and biological laboratory know-how and the ability to work collaboratively and manage interactions with faculty and a broad range of senior and junior research collaborators.   Experience with biological assays, confocal microscopy, or work with bacteria and/or microbiology background is considered favorable but not required.   Interested parties must be willing to live and work in Singapore throughout the project period.
