Open Positions

Postdoctoral Researchers

Highly motivated candidates are sought for postdoctoral researcher positions funded by the Komen Foundation, Pew Charitable Trusts, and Delaware Bioscience Center for Advanced Technology.  The overall goals of these projects are to establish dynamic, three-dimensional human culture models of cancer recurrence and fibrosis, in conjunction and comparison with animal models and patient data, and design new strategies for light-mediated therapeutic delivery. Related to this work, applications are being considered for postdoctoral positions in three areas:

  1. Metastatic Disease and Cancer Recurrence
  2. Fibrotic Disease
  3. Synthetic Material Design and Drug Delivery

Graduate Students

Graduate student researchers must first be accepted into the graduate degree program in Chemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, or Biomedical Engineering at the University of Delaware. Applicants must have exceptional qualifications and should consider applying for an external fellowship. If you are interested in joining our laboratory, please contact us, and we will be happy to discuss these opportunities with you.

Undergraduate Students

We welcome inspired undergraduate students within our lab as research assistants to actively learn through the process of scientific discovery. Our group provides opportunities for interested students to learn techniques at the interface between materials, engineering, and biology. No prior skills are required, and we encourage students to join the lab early in their academic endeavors. Students often begin work apprenticing or after completing their sophomore year as part of the Science and Engineering Scholars Program. Undergraduate students may work for credit, salary/stipend work-study, or as a volunteer. Please contact us if you are interested in joining.
